Topic: home from surgery

Hello everyone my surgery was completed and I am at home resting now.They took half the liver bile ducts and gullbladder,the main obstruction or mass in the duct was 1.9 cm and he said there are lots of microspots which he took what he could safely remove,he could not remove anymore out of the duct left in the liver either.I have a follow up on 3-19and do not know where we go from here.Glad to be home though.

Re: home from surgery

I am sure it is good to be home. Dont forget to eat good food as your liver wants to start growing and needs it. I got so many lectures by the dietician at the hospital about not eating. Good thing the writers strike is over to keep you entertained while recuperating! Take care, and my other little nugget of advice....dont be too proud to ask for help. I was visiting a friend when I got sick and eventually had my surgery, I ended up staying with her for 3 months! She is tough and very strong willed and sort of bullied me into letting her help and to be honest, I dont think I could have made it without her but I would have never asked for her help.
