I'm having a hard time recovering from surgery and I'm bored out of my mind! Surgery was on Monday and I still find myself pretty dependent on the oxy though I'm doing my best to wean myself off.  What can you ladies do to entertain me and keep my mind off the pain??

This is the incision site yesterday.  It feels worse than it looks!

Just an edit to show how well it's healing.  Last pic is day 10 post-op. Still having pain issues, but hopefully those will resolve soon.

Jeeezus!  Why is it so bruised?  I have never had a surgical area look like that!

I've never had bruising like that for my other surgeries, but this one was pretty rough.  The incision itself was 4 inches, they did a lot of digging around and moving things around.  Thank you!
