Surgery done! Resting at home. Pain med not...
7 Dec 2011
Day of treatment
Surgery done! Resting at home. Pain med not helping as much as I would hope, so gonna try a different prescription tomorrow.
I received fluid through an IV and was not prepared for how many times I needed to go to the bathroom after surgery! It hasn't been easy at all to get out of bed, especially so often.
My doctor called tonight just to see how I was doing, which is a really nice gesture and I was able to ask a few questions about meds etc. I feel very swollen but from all I have researched, swelling is inevitable. Drinking lots of water to hopefully help flush swelling down. My first post-op appt is tomorrow, so I should get a quick view as the dr. Is going to change my dressings. So swollen can't yet see difference on stomach area but also had lipo on inner thighs and can already see some improvement there. So I am hopeful! :-)
So day 1 is completed. I am very very sore but I have been able to walk around for a little bit ...albeit hunched over an very very slow. No turning back now...it's done and I am grateful to have made it safely out of surgery and very ready to start the recovery process!
