P.O. Day 8 - feel good St. Louis, MO

I am so incredibly nervous. I check in at 5:30 tomorrow morning! Haven't even taken my own pre-op photos yet. My husband is not nervous for me at all. I just worry about my two kids...and how selfish of me to consider an elective surgery. I love my boys more than life itself and they could care less that I have a spare tire. I appreciate prayers and words of encouragement as I have thought of calling and canceling today...Merry Christmas to everyone and happy healing to you!

Flat! Made it through...not too much pain, no pain pump and minimal oral meds. Staying overnight and going home this morning. Walked the halls twice. Not that hunched over :)

End of day 2 post op. getting around really well. Took a shower because I opted for no pain pump. Drinking tons of water. Took my second lovenox shot. The meds are keeping me comfortable.

Yeah good for you sounds like it all went well. Happy healing

Post op Day 4. Was vomiting last night due to all the meds, Dr. K called in something that kicked the nausea. Have stayed clear of the pain meds today - only xstrength Tylenol - hurts more today but most likely expected since I quit the narcotic...very little out of drains today, hope they come out soon. Been on a heating pad most of day for my back. That is the worst pain.

Post op Day 5
Only getting 15 and 12.5 cc out of my drains daily. When can I get them out? I pulled on one twice today accidentally and the pain was excruciating! Still hunched, back hurts. Got most of the Christmas decor put away. Not a bad day.

Little to no bruising. Standing fairly straight. Went and bought a new compression garment that has helped! Drains came out day 6 - did not hurt at all. Last lovenox shot was today, glad to be done giving myself shots!
