PS nurses and anesthesiologist really great had the royal treatment. Came out of surgery and slept felt like truck hit me. By the evening with all the meds felt better.
Day two home. stayed in bed most of the day and took percs all day along with motrin and had terrible heartburn. Also had some trouble with taking deep breaths.
Day three, I would have to say had the worst pain.
Last night had a fever 100 low grade called the p.s. and he told me not to stay in bed. Was so paranoid last night that I stayed up all night and walked five minutes every hour. Slept for about two hours was really scared. Woke up at 7 a.m. walked in my house and finally took a shower and washed my hair and got dressed.
The dr. told me to put a pillow to my stomach and cough cuz there mite be some phlegm that needs to come out. Well my son is on vacation in Europe and I tried to call him and can't talk cause I have a tickle in my throat that needs to be coughed up and it is the most painful thing I have done since giving birth. Had to hang up on him told him I would call him later hopefully the tickle goes away on it's own.
Using the spirometer. Tummy is black and blue in sporadic places very very tight and numb. tAking a shower felt great.
