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! :)
