Surgery was supposed to go fairly quick and easy. A 3 or 4 hours in the OR and I'm out with an ileostomy bag on my side for a couple of months. Maybe a day or two of recovery in the hospital to make sure everything went fine.
I went in, the anesthesiologist suggested an epidural and I accept his suggestion. Seven hours later I'm in recovery with a huge wound on my stomach as well as the ileostomy bag. Turns out that it's really hard to do laproscopic surgery on a three hundred pound man.
The next week in the hospital is a blur of clear fluids, morphine, a catheter, and doctors looking at the wound in my side with a worried look on their face.
