I am a giant baby about pain. I told my doctor I would be.
That said, I have a good 5-6″ incision through my abdominal wall.
Every time I go to use those muscles, I just about scream.
Do you know how often you use those? Any clue? Let’s just say that if I am awake, I need them.
I got an “abdominal support” thingie which is stretchy and sort of squishes everything. That kind of helps.
The first round of pain meds she gave me helped, but they would fade out too fast before the next dose was due and made my pharmacist nervous. I got new ones today and so far, they seem to work a tiny bit better. I’m still in a lot of pain.
So that’s where I’m at. Owie and a little frustrated with the ongoing pain. I know it will lead to a better quality of life in the future, so it’s okay.
