Hello everyone! It's about 2am and I am about 16 hours post op. I would like some input if anyone has had this same experience. Even with the PCA aka the happy button, my pain is still about 7-8. I am also having issues with most movement. I almost cried a few times from them just helping me with the bedpan. My oxygen levels are still low as well. On top of that I am mega itchy everywhere!!! I told the nurse and they just keep telling me it happens but I'm a diabetic and I have really sensitive skin as it is and I don't want to look like a lobster. I'm just curious if anyone has had a similar issue and any suggestions. Laying awake in the hospital bed in this pain and itchy all over is no fun. Not to mention the weird compression cuffs on my leg also not helping the cause! Has anyone gone through this surgery? If so was the pain that bad for you? Did you get itchy as well? How long were on a liquid diet? Any suggestions?!
