My surgery didn't go as planned, not a surprise, as none of my operations go as expected. My hernia was very large so they had to cut my stomach open (about 4-5") and sew up the hole and on the other side of my stomach I have 3 smaller incisions where they put mesh in the holes. The hospital was not able to control my pain until I was given a mirphine pump about an hour ago. Sitting up and trying to stand makes me cry. So, I'm being admitted and on the pump to control my pain. I'll keep y'all updated as I go along.
