Well I finally got my TT!!!!
After reading many stories on here I thought the pain was going to be much worst. When I woke up from surgery I was in a lot of pain so they gave me morphene, but afer leaving the hospital it hasn't been so bad, I just take my pain meds when I get uncomfortable. I also take an antibiotic 4 times a day and meds for nausea meds when needed. After taking a nap or sitting down too long my back starts hurting. When I walk around it helps alot and I also got some pain relieving lotion from walmart called Aspercreme, and it works great. I use it on my back and neck.
My mouth was extremely dry after surgery and the next day. So the best things to have is bottled water, fruit, popsicles, and salads. I brought almonds, special K granola and crackers but I couldn't eat it because it made my mouth even more dry.
I am very swollen, but I think the compression garment is helping a lot. My Dr. told me which one to order and I love it, fits great! Although it was a bit pricy, over $100. It's hard to tell if I am complety happy with the results or not because I am so swollen, but I think the turnout will be good.
I will be posting post op pictures tommorrow! :)
