    Cough

    Side Effects

    Chronic cough, spitting up food when cough continues too long, diarrhea problems continue. This has been is going on 5 months post surgery so far. This causes interrupted sleep most nights, difficulty talking sometimes and lots of frustration.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    The surgery it self wasn't too bad and I got great care while I was in the hospital for 10 days (Kaiser). Home care was rough the first few days until support staff arrived. I also expected more support with getting a bed and proper set up (such as having my legs raised. ) Still not satisfied.

    Went as Expected: Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
