Well I am pleased to say that my recovery has been much better than I ever expected it would be. I was told over and over again that I would be in pain and let me tell you that will put some fear in you! The truth is I haven’t been in ANY pain what so ever. I have not even taken any pain medication, prescription or over the counter since I’ve been home from the hospital. I am a little sore and even that is waning. I was also told many times that I would be very tired over the next 6 weeks. Well that is not the case at all. I don’t feel any more tired than I did before my surgery. Once the full effects of the anesthesia wore off I’ve felt just fine. I’ve been getting around the house pretty darn good and I even cooked a big pot of taco soup last night. I’ve also picked up around the house just being careful not to over do it. I will also say this recovery has been MUCH easier that recovering from my c-sections. I feel great and THAT is the truth!
I’m not going to lie, 2 days before my surgery when I went for my pre-op visit I left there wondering if it was too late to change my mind. Not because I was scared of the actually surgery, but when they give you the run down of all the risks and possible side effects involved it will scare the living daylights out of you! Thank goodness none of those have applied to me!
I would like to thank my husband for taking such good care of me while in the hospital. I was pretty much in and out of it when I first woke up from my surgery and he was having to help me drink and give me ice chips when needed. I also got sick from the anesthesia and he did everything he could to help me feel better. He is the best!
I also need to thank my mom and my inlaws for taking care of the kids the rest of the week while I recovered. I really appreciated it!
I have to give a special thanks to my wonderful doctor. She is amazing to say the least! She will take the time to sit with you and answer any question you may have…..and I usually have a ton of questions! LOL Some doctors will not take the time for you. She also genuinely cares about her patients and always has their best interest at heart. I am so thankful to have her as my doctor! 🙂
