Post Surgemication: One Week

I was surgemicated on one week ago today!

Wow, seems like I've been through a lifetime since then!  The first three days were a piece of cake, but then I realized...not to be too gross, but I hadn't done a number 2 yet. Let me tell you, that night and the next day were painful! I thought I was going to die!  And when we finally got things loosened, they went too far the other way.  Let me just say that I will n.e.v.e.r. make fun of a Preparation H commercial again...as long as I live...ever.

I'm pretty well recovered now, thank god, but I am pretty tired. Yesterday was my first day back at work, and my first time out of the house for that matter.  I worked 12-4 and did pretty well, other than not being able to find a comfortable way to rest my foot, and I worked 10:00-4:30 today. Really, the most tiring part about work is getting ready to go to work (and it takes me forever to get to the bathrooms...).  I can't shower, so bathing is complicated, and I have to stand on one foot to do everything.

I go get my stitches out the day after tomorrow and, hopefully, I can at least get rid of the crutches. (I can't wait to shower!!!!)

So, let me leave you with one piece of advice: if you are on pain killers and they say they might cause constipation...there is no might about it!! Be proactive or you'll be sore-y! :)

The past few months have not been easy, but whatever. I’m fighting my way through it because I am a badass! I have been doing a lot of thin...
