Praying… my guts took about 4 days to wake after 360 back surgery liquid diet and no meds by mouth as i threw them up . Tylenol I could keep down hurt but got up and walked anyway pushed through it . Walking made a lot of difference. Throwing up was highly entertaining…get up and walk make it happen . It’s tough but just do it….

Dang - sorry to hear that you're suffering splatter. I'd taken a hiatus from the 'fire for a while and wondered where you were at. The answer is "in the hospital"

What are you getting done?

Oh boy !
Opening my stomach area, and moving my guts to the right side.
Chiseling apart l5 and s1 to insert a non organic wedge to start a natural curve back into my spine, then putting on a cage.
Put my guts backs where they belong, ( I hope ), then sewing me up.
Then rolling me on my right side, and cutting into my left side, and through the muscle to access l2 and l3. I have been floating those 2 for some time, so I have cysts inside with my spinal cord. Clean that mess up.
Sew me back up.
Roll me on my stomach, and cut my back open, remove rods holding l4 and l5, add screws to l2 and l3, maybe remove screws from l4 and l5, add new ones ?, and fuse l2, l3, l4, and l5.
Then do a laminectamy (sp?), and sew me up.
They will be keeping me for a minimum of 4 to 5 days to make sure my internals are working fine again, and have me walk 18 laps a day (1 mile) around the floor before discharging me.
I'm in for a recovery for sure.
No more pain I hope.
Have a cruise scheduled for February 5th. 2 months, I should be able to don a tank and do an intro to scuba diving !!

Wow! Just read this. Glad you are past that surgery. As to other parts of the anatomy, bowels tend to be regarded very little; that is, until they aren’t happy. There are few things as deeply painful as distended bowel.

As an aside, I can tell you that all that moving around during the case is a small nightmare for anesthesia.

God’s blessing of healing be yours.
