Hello everyone, Thanks for all of your prayers and wells wishes.
I had the surgery on the 6th and I got to come home on the 12th. I have been stuck on my couch up untill a couple of days ago. My bedroom is up stairs and there was no way I could climb them to get in bed so I was on the couch.
This surgery was he!! recovering from. I didnt think i was ever gonna walk again. I couldnt stand up because my stomach muscles hurt so bad. but i can see the light at the end of the tunnel now, thank goodness.
The surgery went well, I had to have a blood transfussion during the surgery and one the next day. They gave me an epidural for 4 days, that helped alot, but when i got home the pain was unbareable, they had me on oxycotton and diloted (sp) but it didnt help enough if i tried to move. they gave me muscle relaxers in the hospital but they wouldnt give me any for home.
I am doing much better now, i can climb the stairs to get in bed and take a shower. Most of pain is from where they had a drain/suction tube going in my side.
They cut out all the dead tissue and fistulas that were on my butt. I have a huge deep hole there , its gets packed twiced a day and they say its healing real good, i am hoping it will be almost completely healed for our beach trip. were going on the 16th. it will be close. the nurse took my staples out from the insicion on my belly at the beggining of the week, i am still having a little drainage from a little spot one it ,she said it would be ok. i hope so.
i really never thought it would be this painfull, i dont know what i was thinking, i always thought i was able to handle pain good ,but i reckon i was wrong. haha
I'm glad i can laugh now.
My sister brought my son to see me on mothers day. that was so sweet. I am glad I am home.
I cant sit here very long, so i will have to catch up later.
I hope you all are doing well.
