One Week Post-op
I'm having a little pain still. Most of it is incision pain. It's getting better each day, but now the pain seems to be moving from deep to surface. My back hurts a bit, maybe because I've been sitting on my butt so much. Maybe because I've been doing laundry without too much bending and no lifting. I guess no laundry tomorrow. I also drove for the first time today, I had to pick my daughter up from pre-k.
I have my one week followup with my surgeon on Wednesday. I'm looking forward to it because I have a lot of questions. Mostly about my surgery, I wasn't expecting a hiatal hernia repair or fixing the scarring on my pancreas. I'm curious about them and wondering if he has pictures. I also need to talk to him about pain that I'm having when I take a really deep breath. I assume that it's from the hiatal hernia repair.
My clothes are almost too big to wear. The shirts are getting very big on me. Most of the pants are still wearable, but I think it's only because I'm bloated and my belly feels slightly swollen. I'm looking forward to getting some new clothes in the near future (though I won't buy much because I know I won't be in them long!)
