I have not been 'pain free' since coming home on Saturday. It really hurts when I get up or sit down.
This morning I noticed a rather hard and very sensitive area about 2/3 of the way down the incision. There is no leakage in the area or any of the staples.
My pain meds supscriped by the doctor dont feel like they are helping much either and my urine bag gets more bloody as the day goes although this morning overnite bag had a perfect yellow straw like colour.
I've called Dr. Chin's office but he is somewhere in the Orient for the next 10 days. That is also why my cath is not scheduled to come out until Feb. 8th.
Anyone had similar problems ?
