So, um, I found some links while researching the surgical procedure that the surgeon wants to perform on little ol’ mois… they’ve already scheduled it for August 31st, but I’ve asked if they can maybe move it to the last week of September when its school holidays… ‘coz then Damien can stay with da Bruvva and my SIL and no-one needs to worry about driving him to school and back while I’m in the hospital.
As I usually do with just about everything from owning a cat to giving training at work- I have researched it to death- and now I’ve gone and scared myself shitless! It’s called a Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication. Yup. Now say it again really fast with a toffee in your mouth! I’ll leave it to the links for you to see exactly how it works and what they’ll be doing… what scares me is the risk and what happens afterwards! Can you believe I will be unable to throw up or belch after the operation- ever again…
On a related note- you can find the photos of my gastroscopy here if you’d like to see them! The pictures with the weird ripple pattern are from the inside of my stomach! Did you know that’s what it looked like!?
