thanks--I plan on a lot of reading etc.. When can you go grocery shopping again ?Hi Kate,
I was so scared about the tube down my throat! But I figured It wouldn't be in for too long. I have zero memory of that tube! The nurse told me that she asked if I wanted it taken out and I just waved her away lol.
For me, the worst part was expecting to feel so much better as soon as the valve was replaced and realizing it was a slow process to heal. But every week I got better. My surgery was May 27th and I would say it took me about 2 1/2 months to feel close to normal. But I feel so much better now, and you will get through it!
Definitely make plans for your recovery at home. We're all different but I didn't want to do much more than watch tv lol.
Best of luck!
