Hi guys! well its 2 weeks post op. i woke up to find my doc had had to do a vertical cut from just above pubic bone nearly to mybelly button, complete with 30 staples!! I nicknamed him 'slasher'!
the first night you'd have thought that with anasthetic still in my system and morphine on tap - that i'd sleep! Wide awake all night twiddling my thumbs!! Literally!
Night two my cather broke - awoke cold and wet - covered in my own wee, feeling like the town drunk!
When i was on my feet on day 3, nurses kept asking had i opened my bowels? Are they kidding - im expecting an Alien moment if i do!However ihave a secret weapon - dulcolax yippee! Took it six days post op tho.....!
Has anyone seen those posters in hospital loos about different types of poo? there's no way i was risking a #1 or #2 ! (full on constipation)
Home on day 5. I do believe hubby found every pot hole, bump and crease on the way home tho.
mobility gradually easier. had rest of staples out this monday just gone - holy moly - felt like i was splitting in two!
Last night was a landslide victory for womankind. i can report that pots and pans from 'last friday' got washed up finally by hubby! hee hee!
i am now officially bored tho. i refuse to watch daytime tv. ive watched all the films i can. ive read all i can. Last night i put a plea out to all my friends asking for visits and the occasional trips out!
im off for a slow shower now.yes i know its pm and yes im still in my dressing gown - bite me!!
