Surgery went well yesterday
but I have been hurting miserably.
When I say miserably, I mean MISERABLY!
It's not like I expected not to hurt,
I just wasn't expecting to hurt so bad.
I apologize, in advance, if this post is TMI.
If you are afraid it will be TMI, then don't read any further.
Consider yourself warned.
He was able to repair my tear and place
a mesh-type material to provide reinforcement.
I had both a catheter and vaginal packing
post-operatively that was quite painful.
I was REALLY glad to get rid of both of those.
I have only been laying down so far, no sitting yet.
It feels like my insides are falling out
and someone is trying to hold them in place with a knife.
I made the mistake of trying to manage my pain with only
Ibuprofen, which I SHOULD NOT have done.
I decided I NEED the good stuff
and ibuprofen does not equal the good stuff.
Sorry, Ibuprofen, please don't take it personally.
I have pelvic and lifting restrictions for 6 weeks.
I have GOT to get well so I can go to Honduras next month.
Sorry, I haven't updated sooner
but I, honestly, just haven't felt like it.
Please say a prayer, or two, for a quick recovery.
I know, I've really gotta take it easy this time.
Believe me, take it easy I will.
I don't have any other choice.
Love you MUCH!
