Ouch Ouch double Ouch

I am home now............surgery was successful but boy do I hurt! she had to do extensive work that was not expected-all thanks to lots of scar tissue from my C-section 6 years ago! My pain level right now is high, but when I am up walking a bit it seems to help for some reason. Right now, my "Tummy Pillow" is my best friend! I don't go anywhere without it.
I don't feel like doing much but resting, and my appetite is slowly coming back-I had a couple days where I was sick because they fed me solid foods too soon (big booboo-it was an accident).
So I am taking that slowly and just eating small meals of soft foods. I am trying to be positive-yesterday was bad and it took all my energy just to get home, but I am SO glad to be home.

I'm glad things went well.

After my surgery when I was in ICU, all I wanted to do was walk. It got to the point where the nurses refused to let me out of bed. But walking hurt less than lying in bed, so I understand what you're saying.

Kristy, take care of yourself and take the time to heal. You will be back on your feet before you know it. Thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers.

great you are home
but don't go fast...it takes more time than you want for healing to occur
and resting is a big big part of healing
it makes the cells recover
walking IS good for you just not compulsively...
hope you mend well

Hi there! Glad to hear your home and loving your tummy pillow. We made a bunch of those for an enrichment one night and donated them to the hospital. Still keeping you in my prayers.
