I’m doing better each day, but the other day I was in the bathroom for five hours. Pain meds have terrible side effects so since that caught up with me I had to give them up. I’m not in pain anymore so it’s a good thing to be off of them. I’m just dealing with eating regular meals again and getting back on my sleep schedule so there is a light at the end of the tunnel after surgery.
It’s been two weeks since I had the surgery, I’m still really weak but I’m getting stronger so I should say that I’m better. I just have to listen to the doctor and not pick anything up for six more weeks. The hardest thing is not being able to hold my kids. It’s hard on them and on me. My doctor said that my incisions should feel well enough in another week to sleep on my stomach so maybe I can get some more cuddles in then too.
Before my surgery I received two pairs of socks from Patientstyle. They are find to wear while you are in the hospital, they are warm and they have the tiniest gripies in the socks. They are soft and I’ve been enjoying them with my recovery. My husband has been washing everything I’ve been wearing on sanitize and they are still soft coming out of the wash. It’s nice to know that I’m not going to slide and fall and re-injure myself.
PATIENTSTYLE Anti-Microbial Socks. These socks are anti-microbial socks They have a new e-commerce site dedicated to new and expecting moms, and those who have had to undergo stays/surgeries at the hospital, like me. The founder is former President of lifestyle brand Karen Neuberger (if you are familiar). There are gifts for everyone on the site – mom, baby, the elderly, kids.
They are offering two pairs to one of my readers. So while I’m sitting here in my recovery socks, you can have a pair of nice warm socks to keep your feet warm during the winter. Or maybe you’ll have a need sometime. I sure hope not because surgery sucks!
