A little nervous

week one post op

Sorry haven't updated my info I have been trying to just relax havent used my laptop I hate using my phone so anyhow day one of my surgery for TT & BA got into the or aprox 8am woke up @ aprox 12:30 felt great no pain nurses were awesome couldn't believe how awake and alert I was I almost felt like I didn't even have a surgery my husband came in at about 2 took so long for him to come in because they got busy and the person next to me just wouldn't stop bitching about his pain so I got all my instructions off I went home not being able to take a proper shower really sucks having drains in for longer than the normal four days really sucks mine are coming out tomorrow my doctor has two offices he's only in the one near me once a week Wednesdays so when his office schedule my surgery they just assumed I want to go to the one near me for my post op visit anyway I just can't wait till drains are gone the pain has been very manageable first two days I was taking pain pills once every 6 hours and I was up walking around all the time I mean I hardly even sat down my doctor called me the day after and actually told me I had to do a better job of just relaxing so that's what I've been doing I'm going to upload a couple pictures but I have my bindings on after tomorrow I'll upload some without the binding its just a pain in the ass to get the binding back on with the drain still in

post op day 7

Hi there, I have to let you know I did a no pump tt and I love it, no messy drains to deal with! Good luck, I am only 2 post-op and hope to get a photo up soon! To my surprise, I have been pretty much pain free except the swelling and back aches, I highly recommend a pain pump!
