@triciaodonnell I'm glad to hear you are starting to feel better. My surgery was Monday morning and I was discharged yesterday. I think the worst part for me was the gas pains, especially in the shoulders – but it seems that moving around helps. I didn't sleep the best last night but I know it will get better everyday and will be patient. My husband had his surgery to receive his kidney last Thursday and is doing amazing! It is unbelievable the difference this new kidney has been for him. Even though he is still sore he feels great! As far as you staying another night – I think you should take advantage of it to get yourself stronger & feeling a bit better. No reason to push it if you don't have to 🙂 I wish you the best in the days to come & hope each day is better than the last.
