Surgery done 3-22-19.  Hernia from  J Pouch surgery 2013.  Started to grow & stomach coming through.  I didn't take this lightly.  I had 2 consults with both GI & surgeon.  My dr who did my J-Pouch did hernia repair.  I was completely comfotable with this.  He said i would b in hospital 2-3 days.

I came through surgery in massive pain.  He said it took 4 hrs instead of 2.  I still don't know why.  I was on morphine pump 3 days.  Totally delerious.  3rd day his nurse comes in says if u can drink & eat something u can go home.  Besides ins co only pays for 3 days. Without even a exam.  They booted me out with 12 Oxycodon & said call if needed or wait for fu apt.  I knew i wasn't coherent & all the morphine didn'tt wear off.  I was shocked the dr who did my 3 major surgeries in a big hospital Temple in Philadelphia now in a smaller hospital didn't even care to speak to me.  He was not like this before, like I didn't know him at all.    One hr from home I am in excruciating pain.  I had to call a ambulance.  In my local hospital admitted with a bowel obstruction.  More pain than i have ever had.  I thought i was dying & would have if i didn't get myself to er.  I week later d/c.  I am so distressed over this & disheartened that my surgeon only responded with excuses when I contacted him on the matter.  He then has his nurse call me with more excuses.  Even to the point saying I acted ok & said I was ok. Also, saying his team was responsible after surgery.   This was a dr I had a great relationship with & truly thought I was in good hands.  I never want to see or have surgery again in my life.  This cured me.  Life happens but not by choice again.  This life of J pouch & surgerious is a long hard road.  One I wish I had never gone down.
