Just a quick update here. Beginning to be more sore than before. Now that the gas is minimal, it's left focus downward. I went to the Dr. yesterday because of a suspected UTI. All was well, but, man it stings a bit! They said with the stents placed during the procedure, it could for a while. I'm still spotty with my urine too. There was a little blood detected in the urine on my tests, but, there was no suspicion of bleeding with my blood draw (and no infection), so, they think it's just leftover from the procedure. Going to keep an eye on things and drinking TONS of cranberry juice!
My poor incisions are going to drive me mad. They cleaned them some yesterday at the office, particularly the one in my belly button. They are so gross, especially with all the irritation around them. How long do the incisions ooze? Sorry, that is such a gross word! They look so awful :( Benedryl has been my sleepy little friend the past two days!!! I've got an ointment called Sylvadine to put on the incisions, and, that helps too. I am covering them with "apron" dressings...gauze placed with adhesive at the top but not on the side and bottoms-to let them breathe. My shirt irritates them, so, I had to put something on them! I remember having a hard time with my incisions last time, and then there were only two. Double the trouble this time.
Gas has finally lifted most of it's misery. It's still a LITTLE in my shoulders, but, nothing unbearable. My right side is terribly sore-in the area of that ovary they worked so hard on. The bruising has started to surface on all but one of the incision areas. I look like I got in a fight! :)
So, slowly on the mend. I thought about going to work at the end of this week, but, I am thinking more on the side of not doing that and just laying low the rest of the week. I've been getting up and doing small things like walking around the grocery store and wally world. I just don't want to push myself. I am going to try again cutting back to 1/2 the pain pills. I hate having to take them...but, won't cut them out completely.
Back to chilling with the family. :)
