So far i'm not sure it was a good idea... it's been a hard road, one which i wasn't prepared for..... No one told me how painful this would be, however i was unable to take pain meds... and due to headaches stopped taking even the minimum pain reliever at 3 days post op.
I am having a hard time standing up straight still...due to the huge incision opening... the dr insists it's common though i have yet to find a woman it's happened to. I've been told i will have to heal from the inside out... and we are due to go on vacation in just 2 1/2 weeks...i have a feeling I am not going to have such a great time.
Remaining positive is no longer easy for me. I am tired of being couch bound... 3 1/2 weeks is too long. AND I had to leave my drain pump in for 18 days!!!!!!!! They said it was from me over doing it the first week :( I have 4 kids...it's close to impossible to NOT over do it.
