Overall Journey

UCLA Health article

Overnight in the hospital living in cramped quarters. One thing I do remember from a patient’s point of view it would have been helpful to see Dr. Livhits at least one time and just see a familiar face. You see these doctors you have no relationship with and I did not find it very helpful because they don’t really know you as a patient. Otherwise it was a positive experience. I would have liked to see Dr. Livhits after the surgery at least once after the surgery. There were multiple times where the doctors conveyed instructions to the nurses such as allowing me to eat solid food did not occur. I did not have any pain but it felt like there was an elephant on my chest and a boa constrictor around my upper torso region. There was positive results from the surgery though.
