4 days out
Sep 07, 2010Hey guys and gals, hope it is a good evening. I am sure glad I am now 4 days out from surgery. Each day is a little less painful than the day before. I know I was telling my daughter "I did not expect this to hurt as bad as it did and I did not do well with the morphine." I could not walk, because i could not stay awake long enough. They did try to make me wake up alot of times, but the nurse just kept saying you are not awake enough to walk. I had surgery at 10 am and walked at 1:00 am the next morning(in the middle of the night).
Anyway I am happy to be on the losing side of the equation. I had an episode of too much last night, too much broth and jello. I was sick and gurgling all night long. Too much gas, too much rumbling, no sleep. Finally, I was better this am. The longer I was up the better it was. Now I have learned that lesson. Hopefully, I won't have to go through it again.
