Well, I had my surgery on Tuesday. I was pretty nervous about it but then friend hugged me and my husband kissed me and the nurse gave me some kind of drugs she called a margarita and that's all I remember until I woke up in recovery. I guess my surgeon even came by and I talked to him. I have no memory of that.
I spent much of Tuesday sleeping with some family in and out to visit me. I was not as bad off pain wise as I expected to be on Tuesday.
Wednesday I was a little more sore and had trouble walking. I was very unsteady on my feet. My legs felt as though they were jello. I walked a few times and finally was able to pee so they didn't have to put my cath back in
Today I am sore...so very sore. The vein my IV was in blew this morning and now that arm is very sore. I am a lot more tired than I thought I would be and a lot weaker than I expected. I am going to have to start getting some protein and calories in soon. I am not hungry, so I will just have to take it nice and slow.
It feels weird to be on this side of surgery. I did "gain" a few lbs being in the hospital but the Dr said its from all the swelling and water and that walking will help that.
