ok my surgery is tomorrow and i have to be there at 12p that is my check in time. I have cleaned the house and i actually got a hospital bed so i can make the adjustments that i need to be comfortable. I have gotten everything i need down stairs and i am ready. I had to drink the magnesium citrate to clean me out for the surgery so that was not good tasting but i did it anyway. I will keep you posted and i will post pics starting tomorrow.

post op day 1 was not that bad my pain was about a level 2 so not so painful. It was hard to get in and out of bed and my back is hurting so bad but it is bareable.

post op day 2 still not in a lot of pain but i need to cough and it really burns but i have to get it out.

post op day 3 i went to the doctor and they unwrapped me and it looks great i forgot my camera so i was not able to take any pictures but i take my first shower on tomorrow so i will take pictures then.

post op day 4 it is 4a and i have lot of gas and feel like i want to poop but it is not painful so that is a plus. i will keep you posted.

Well we are psot op day 5 and i have no appetite and i have not taken pain meds in 2 days. Not feeling my best self but not in a lot of pain. I took my first shower on last night and i was exhausted when i finished. My husband helped me with the shower and he actually did a wonderful job. I am having a problem with back pain and when in bed the pillows are not helping me at this time, Will try to post pics soon sorry for the delay.

Post op day 7 well everything is going fine and i have had several BM's and lots of gas but nothing i can not handle. I am going back to work on tomorrow 4/2 and i have my 2nd post op appt on Tuesday and i am not draining hardly any so keep your fingers crossed i hope they remove my drains on tuesday. Still not much of an appetite but i am ok with that. I have minimum pain only when i cough and that is kind of going away. I can get up and down the stairs and i am not showering by myself. So it has been a good ride so far but my back is still giving me the blues. I wanted to know when can you stop sleeping on your back and start sleeping on your side? If anyone knows please let me know.

post op day 8 went back to work this morning and it was aweful I was in so much pain that i could not take it anymore i went home and took 2 pain pills and laid down and now i feel so much better. I am excited about my post op visit on tomorrow i really hope they take my drains out because they are not draining anymore. Wish me luck and say a little pray for me. I will keep you all posted.

post op day nine and i went in for my 2nd post op appt and they only took out one drain and my PS told me to call on Thursday morning to give recording for drain and if satisfactory he will remove on Friday, I had a temp today of 99.2 not bad but not good. I am finally able to post pics that i took at the PS this morning. Let me know what you think.

My pain is slowly increasing so i am now back to taking the pain meds again so hopefully that will get better soon. I think i am over doing it a little so today i think i am going to stay home from work and just rest.

Good thing you are not on pain meds anymore. I had a lot of issues with my lower back as well. It was annoying. The pillows did help. I was definitely happy when I got to sleep on my sides again. What a relief. Happy Friday!

Yes, getting in and out of bed is very hard. But it gets easier as the days pass. Happy Healing!

You will not regret the hospital bed. It will definitely help a lot and make you more comfortable. Good luck tomorrow and get a good nights rest. Be sure to sleep on your tummy or on your side tonight!! You won't be able to do that for a few weeks. Best wishes!
