Continuing to Recover

Azer is recovering well. He is tolerating more of his G-tube feeds, and eating a small amount of food. He is now on all oral pain medications, and his mobility is a lot better. He played several rounds of Foosball and even went to PT.

They did an X-ray just to check on some shoulder pain he had, but it's just some air left in his abdomen from surgery. His lungs look pretty good.

Azer has had some burning in his stomach and reflux that has gotten into his throat. The GI doctor prescribed a new medication that should coat his esophagus so it doesn't burn, and that it may take time for the Nissen to completely prevent reflux. We all felt surprised that he is having reflux so soon after this surgery.
