I got to take a shower today and take off all my binders. That. Felt. Good. I am so shocked at how much of a difference there is.
Yep, it's no picnic. Today the pain is much better. I am taking 2 vicodin every 4 hours and a valium (muscle relaxer) in there too. I have to empty the drains every couple hours. I get about 50-60 cc's out of each side. My sweet hubs helped me peel off the outer dressings before the shower. I think he was surprised to see all the bruises!
Dr Renucci kept saying the scar will be below my 2 piece line. HA! I don't even wear shorts much less a 2 piece. I can't believe how flat my stomach is. Nicely done Dr.
Here's the other side. We didn't take any of my back. We will later. I was tuckered out from the shower experience. Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement. I am so blessed. Thanks to my hubs for stepping up and just doing what needs to be done. I love you.
