Just a quick update: I am sore still but okay. Was pretty dopey this weekend on painkillers but am needing less today, for sure. The actual catheter isn’t going to be too bad. I mean, I’m not in love with plastic tubing hanging out of my belly, but that’s just vanity. I see no evidence of internal bleeding like before the second surgery. Mainly I am itching from all of the tape I have to use to keep the tubing from dangling. I have ordered a Catheter belt that includes a pouch for the excess tubing. So that should help immensely. I’m still swollen, but it seems like your regular run-of-the-mill-post-surgery swelling.
I have Dialysis tonight, so that’s my big plan for today. Just gonna chill and veg out. Love Y’all!!! Try to choose joy… That’s what I’m trying to do too!!!
