Thought I'd say "hi" to others that have been through the same thing. My surgery was Friday morning and I was home Saturday afternoon. The doctors are not sure what caused my issues to begin with, but they all "think" that it was probably due to a head injury and subsequent fall I had back in 1977 (oh, I was 18 at the time and in the military).
So far the only issue is the swallowing... milkshakes help considerably. I noticed that some of you have used Cloraseptic (sp) -- any other suggestions for the swallowing?
I backed off the Oxicodone and went to Vicodine and am hoping to be down to tylenol by the end of the week. Also am taking 200mg of Celebrex for the swelling. Oh... I also have chronic migraines, but have not had one since the surgery.
