Post Op

It has been  sixteen days since surgery.  I have found a painless moment to write a little something.
Surgery was a blast, 8 hours on the table 3 hours in recovery, I don't remember much more for the next couple days except I felt like I was laying on a shovel, rocks, twigs and a fire pit.  When I was coherent the fire ants all over my back burned like hot coals.  I was finally able to have them look at the incision they had used Tegederm sheets to cover my entire back, that was great however I am allergic to adhesive,  It was noted on my chart,  I made sure we discussed it before the surgery.   That was all beside the point by now.  so they changed the dressing and I was completely blistered all over my back and sides. Big long wide blisters like 2nd degree burns,  I realized that my thoughts as to how my back felt was fairly accurate.  They redressed it and the staff was a frenzy to find out how it happened.  All I wanted was relief. They put some cream on it and redressed the wound.
I was determined to go home on Sunday, and I did. It has been so difficult.  When you can't even get in and out of bed like you use to.  I hate pain meds and have really tried to do without it. Its not possible as hard as I try, I get to a point that is beyond control and I have to do something.  The Doc said I should be on them for two months.  I am not in favor of that at all. So for now I will take it one day at a time.

Soon I will start making something..............................


  1. Eeep look after yourself, hope you feel better soon.

  2. Will be praying for you. Take care and I know being on meds is not fun, but if they ease the pain and let you rest your healing will go faster. Pray things will be going better real soon for you.
