Wednesday was good. Thursday, I hit a wall. Yesterday was better.
The recovery from this lap has been significantly different from my last. With my last, I was more alert, but the gas and constipation pains were UNBEARABLE. I also had significant bleeding with the last surgery. With this lap, my main issues have been nausea, pain in my left ovary (probably from the stitches IN my ovary... just a guess), and fatigue. No bleeding whatsoever, and minimal gas and constipation. The fatigue isn't fun. It hits me very suddenly. I'll be fine one minute, and the next I feel lightheaded and I HAVE to lay down.
I managed to get out of the house for about 10 minutes yesterday and take a (very slow) walk around the neighborhood with Joey and Danica. Today our goal is to get me out for a longer period of time. We're going shopping for comfy pants that I can wear to work next week, since my belly is currently swollen to the point where I cannot see my feet, and probably grab some dinner. Tomorrow we'll go grocery shopping, so that will get me out of the house yet again before I have to return to work on Monday.
Progress. That's all that matters.
