A Week Out
I went to the doctor yesterday, after a little grocery shopping, and he removed 3 of the 4 drains and all the tummy stitches. I'm wearing an elastic wrap around my belly that is allot like the girdles I wore as a teen (WHAT WAS I THINKING!!) I just found out I have to wear it for 6 WEEKS! Pitts! Although it has decreased my appetite and I have lost 10 pounds! In the hospital the only thing that sound good was cold.......so I ate allot of fruit. The surgery didn't remove any flesh, it just moved it so it's not from that. I'm thinking I should keep this wrap and wear it at meal time!!
I'm feeling good, moving good (reaching the floor is a bit f a problem) and eating good! All in all, I believe I will survive! I wasn't too sure the first day or so after surgery..........say NO to morphine!! Sure clouds your brain! I'm taking Tylenol now.
Hear from me soon!
