Pod2: so I finally got my TT,feeling very sore,kind of embarrassing Becuz I can't use the bathroom by myself,not really sleeping, but hubby thought I was gonna be feeling better by today so that way he coUld go back to work.but I can't even sleep in my own bed,sleeping in recliner cant sit on toilet Becuz it's to low so I'm using a throw away cup..I was finally able to shower today but that didn't go so well, garment was difficult to put back on,so I started feeling light headed, nausea, like I was gonna faint.just can't wait to feel better it's not a walk in the park but everybody recovery is different, but will post pics soon

P O D 6: so it's been a couple of days I haven't been on,just can't sit up straight on the edge of bed to use laptop so I couldn't let day 7 go by in not post an update. So the last few days I been stuck home, yesterday was my post op appt with my ps, he told me everything looks good, not to worry Becuz when I got to him my drainage tube had falling out by itself so I was a bit scared of catching infection.but anywhoo,so 1 day out was yesterday I was able to go to Walmart to do a little shopping with hubby still walking very funny,uncomfortable,was able to stop m sit at subway for a min,but I'm still not able to standup for a long time Becuz i still can't stand up straight.im still taking meds almost around the clock get this huge burning sensation around my incision,n it throbs. Last night was a bit crazy,couldn't get comfy I'm bed and when I did I was in a lil bit of pain but everyday it gets a lil bit better so deftly..1day at a time. Gonna post the 1 pic I took before I became swollen like a balloon

Hang in there!  First two weeks are hard and you only need to take it a day at a time.  You can do this!!

Thank you for sharing your story and pictures. Each day you will feel better, but it is important that you don't do too much too soon. I was exhausted for weeks after my TT. You need to take help from your family - it is important for your healing. Hang in there - better days are coming!
