Hi everyone! The surgery went very well. My walking is coming along slowly. I have been out of the hospital since Monday afternoon. I actually went to Walmart because I had some stuff to get. I did fine until the end of it. Then it got rough. I was totally worn out and felt kind of sick. When I got back home I went to sleep and slept and slept.
The pain has actually been okay. The biggest pain is where the major incision was made - it's also where the drainage ball was. But it's nothing constant.
Anyway, I suppose I need to get moving a little bit now, but I wanted everyone to know the surgery went well. That I'm well. I'm on liquids, of course, and I see my surgeon on Friday.
What really sucks is that I can't drive for the next 2-3 weeks. It sucks, but there's nothing I can do about it. Those are the rules.
I still want to sleep a lot, but I guess I'm going to have to get myself to do walking and sitting up for longer periods of time. Not that I can't. I just find it's more comfortable to lay down most of the time. But that has to change. And I have plenty of things to keep me sitting up like playing online :-).
So that's it. I'll update and share stuff as I go along. Hope everyone is doing well! :-D
