I was released with my successful surgery completed on 11/20 and was home by 11/22! What a ride it has been as all of you know.
So far I’m doing all right and ruling the world from my anti-gravity lounger, no swelling and not overdoing it and my family (hubby, three girls ages, 9, 7 and 19mos.) have been amazing!
I was able to undergo the surgery in the way I felt most comfortable with light sedation and epidural only and have taken only Tylenol before bed when needed which is every night so far. That’s when all the strange sensations are too much for me, the burning the electricity, just lots of healing and repairing going on it feels like. I’ve even learned to pee in the toilet instead of on it! The absolute humanity of my situation was humbling and had it not been for birthing kids I don’t think I could have handled it without getting in the way!
I so appreciate all this site has done for me and now I’m going to read about sleeping positions… Side sleeping works for about 1/2hr. with the pillow tucked between my legs but feels really heavy in the hip! Slowly but surely I’m healing and grateful for all the little things every day.
