Today helped me realize how serious this surgery was/is. So I was sitting at my desk at my pt job, laughing at somthing one of my dumb friends said. I felt something in my stomach that hurt like a sharp cramp. You know the kinda that make you snap to ATTENTION. I was like "wow that was weird" but just chopped it up to another one of those weird feeling ive had since having surgery. Well a few more minutes went by and I continued to laugh. Well this joke was so funny I but my hand on my stomach to try and "hold it together". So I noticed my hand was wet. Im clumsy so I thought I just spilled one of my delicious protein shakes on my shirt
. So I looked down at my hand and realized it was red.
I was BLEEDING!!!!! and this was no little amount of blood it soaked through my shirt, and made its way to my jeans(which i later found out was the author of all this trouble). So I freaked, the tears started flowing and the only thing I could think of was " im going to pass out in this stupid office,they are going to find me and I have holes in my draws!
Well I called my Dr. and her staff( who are the greatest) asked me a few question and determined I wasnt in any type of danger and I should grab a Maxi bad and apply pressure for twenty minutes(without peaking) and I should be fine. Guess what????? They were right!
This was my first day wearing jeans and although they were not tight , the button fell was right on my scar. So the rubbing caused the issue. Needless to say ill be sticking to leggings!!!!!
JUST ANOTHER DAY IN THE LAND OF THE BAND!!
