Lai lai my turn to update on my op process I guess

Fri - 19 May 2017
Went to the Hospital at about 9.30am, registered, drew a vial of blood for my blood test and got placed into a day surgery ward to hold me until my surgery as the room I requested for is not available yet.

About 1.30pm - Nurses came and transferred me to the pre-ops room to wait, waited for about 30-45 mins there before my doctors came in and I was wheeled to the operating theater.

6.10pm - My mum got a call that my surgery was completed, but due to come miscommunication, I wasn't actually released until about 9-10pm as the oxygen concentration in my blood was too low. As a result, I was kept in ICU overnight to monitor my oxygen concentration. Throughout the entire experience, did not feel any major pain, but more of discomfort as I was not used to my jaw being clamped shut and I have no place for the blood/phlegm to discharge from.

20 May 2017 - Day 2
Woke up still in ICU, got transferred to the general ward at about 3.30pm. Was given hot clear soup as breakfast, lunch and dinner (honestly just tasted those chicken stock soup), was encouraged to drink/eat more as I will be off the IV drip that day. Managed to build up quite an appetite and I discovered I had a cheat code for drinking as I have a tooth pulled out in my lower jaw, giving me a space to insert the syringe into. Did nothing except to sleep continuously in the general ward and wake up when it is time to take my medicine or for the nurses to change my ice pack. Had a slight fever that night but couldn't really recall what happened except I was made to take a medicine and the fever was gone come morning.

21 May 2017
Everything is okay, doctor came to visit again to summarize what happened during the entire surgery and what happened, explained the usage and dosage of the anti-biotics and painkiller and how to take them and what I should be looking out for/doing in the next few days, discharged today at about 11am!

Overall: Not much pain, more of discomfort, managed to find an opening for my phlegm /blood to spill out of in day 2, so it got better. Currently jsut resting at home and playing computer games to pass the time

Hi, in case anyone need this food tips. On my day 3 & 4, i became very nauseated and my stomach is at its maximum discomfort. This being said, i only slept less than 1hr during the night of those 2 days. Finally, i found out the reason.

I have been having ensure milk, milo, plain water, and lots of medications. However, one thing im lacked of. Which is sodium. My body lacked of sodium. So, you might want to try mixing KFC whipped potato with any soup. I tried with LAO HU TANG Lotus soup. It's so far the best! Furthermore, its more filling because it contains potato and you can use it to drink using a syringe.

-Problem Solved-
