Today is Friday. I went to my follow up Wednesday and every other staple was removed down my legs. That area isn't too bad, but the pain closest to my lady parts is still horrible where those sutures are. I had hoped I would be feeling better by today. I am thankful I am sleeping well, but other than that it is bad.
Taking a shower is still exhausting. I hate hate hate using the restroom. I have a Go Girl and elevated toilet seat. I am hoping for relief soon. Still taking prescription pain meds. I should have known it would be horrible when the pain med prescription was written with refills. I' not expecting to feel 100%, just want to feel improvement.
I'm sorry to hear you're not doing so well. Please keep us updated as this is the next surgery I will be having once I heal from LBL which I'm 5 months postop and still healing very slowly. Please read my blog as any advise would help. Thank you and hope to read more of you postings.
Hope you feel some real improvement soon!
