Hey everyone, this is the third time, I have tried making a post... so now that I am in AGAN! I first have to give thanks to the greatest surgeon and healer in the world and that is Jesus Christ, He has been there from start, to finish, AND to the present, and I could never thank Him enough.
Ok...I arrived at the center @7A to get marked up (surgery @8A), vitals etc, and of course I took my Valium for the anxiety, which I don't think I had to much of, but my husband will tell you different...LOL, next was the insertion of the IV, and the rest is history, all I remember, is seeing one ot the anesthesiologist by my side, I don't remember them dressing me, I don't remember my husband being there in the recovery room, none of that, and sure as hell don't remember the ride back to the hotel, which was less than five minutes away.
When I did come around, I remember my husband giving me my meds, and asking how I was doing.
I must say I thank God, that i have not experienced a whole lot of pain, and I started off with the less potent pain med, anyway, it feels like what you could compare to a very intense work out....don't get me wrong, there is some pain, but I guess everyones pain tolerance is different, and I can stand a little more than others.
I can proudly say, I had my first BM yesterday, more watery than anything, I'm glad of that, and for the P-EZ, that is a life saver....I have also had my first shower, which my husband thought was too soon, but I couldn't go another day, without one, anyway, he did my back, and lower body, which he was kind of scared to touch the vajj, becauses it is still swollen, and I did the face, arms, breast and underarms...I felt like a new woman afterwards, and oh boy, getting that lotion on me, took away the discomfort from the itching!...
The only thing that is really bothering me now is the CG, doctor G, doesn't want me to put my t shirt under it just yet, so it just feels so tight, sometimes like I can't breathe, but day by day its gets better, plus it feels like I am so bloated. The swelling hasn't been too bad , but again, I have my moments....hell for 4 days I think I am doing really well!
Question....i don't go for my next post op until Tuesday, and when I was there Thursday, I don't have a clue what that man said to me, I was on my meds, anyway the question is....is the bellybutton suppose to be dry, or are you to put the ointment on it also?, my husband says ointment, so it won't be infected.
I'm getting a little tired now, but there are pics, as you can see.
Does anyone know how to post the before and afters, side by side?, if so please let me know.
One last thing, since starting my journey, I must say that I have met and read some fascinating journals, and on a personal note there is one lady I met by the name of cricket b12 and she has been here for me, every step of the way, if I don't get a phone call you best believe i will be getting a text, and when I was out, i made sure i told my husband, in the case I couldn't , that he would give her a text or call.
So to make a long story short, she has been my girl from day one, my ride or die!!!!!love you chica!!!!, and I would like to shout out to imme b 12 she never failed to answer any of my questions or point me in the right direction, I am so grateful that God had our paths cross, and me to come across this site!!!!!!!
