Glad to hear that you are "HomeSweetHome"!!!
I know the feeling too. I just had my first resection last Monday and was in the hospital for a week. I could not take my meds for bipolar/anxiety for a while too and it was cRaZy!!!!
I totally understand when you say that it took a serious toll on you mentally!!! I was having anxiety attacks too and curled up in a little ball with my blood pressure racing! I also was having terrible nightmares from being off my meds I think! I was all jacked up and shaking like a leaf on a cold wintery day!!! I just wanted to get outta there as fast as I could.
Once home I was much more M...E...L...L...O...W~!!! The experience left me hoping that I would never ever have to return ever again!!!!!
Yep, your incision looks just like mine does! I see my surgeon on Wednesday. I hope he takes these staples outta me!!!
What will be your maintenance plan now regarding medications? That's what I'm wondering for myself too.
Wishing you wellness!

OMG! My first sneeze after surgery was soooo funny!!!!
I was able to send the sneezes off coarse when I was in the hospital by wiggling and rubbing my nose. The thought of having a sneeze was very scary! Ouch Ouch Ouch...I thought.
Once home a sneeze snuck up on me and I tried my hardest to send it off coarse but I couldn't. The sound I made was a cross between a cough/muffled sneeze and what it would sound like if you stepped on a cat's tail.
Everyone in my house jumped up and said, "What the heck was that???? Are you okay????" They couldn't believe it was a stiffled sneeze!!! LOL, LOL, LOL.
I think the anticipation and thought of having a sneeze was worse than actually experiencing one! LOL
Wishing Everyone Wellness!!!
