It’s been 1 week. This time last week I was sitting on the couch bitching how hungry I was. I was watching the clock tick by waiting for my time to head to the hospital. Wow, what a week it’s been.
Today I’m doing really well. Yesterday I took pain killers at 7:00 a.m. and then not again until 10:00 that night. This isn’t to say that I haven’t taken anything. I’ve had ibuprofen. Don’t think I’m superwoman.
I did have to take something a little stronger over night. I will admit to probably doing a little too much yesterday. I rode in the car to the produce market and then took a little nap. Then I made coleslaw to go with the pork I threw in the crock pot earlier in the day. Hey, I made dinner.
One thing I totally forgot about, but am facing now is nerve pain. As my incision heals my skin becomes overly sensitive. Right under my belly button the skin is in searing pain. There is no pain killer in the world that will touch it. It gets better over time, but at first it is terrible. Loose pants are the solution for now.
