I'm down to needing pain drugs twice in a 24 hour period. The doctor will release me to drive when I have been off them completely for 48 hours. Maybe that will happen by next week? I wouldn't be in a rush if my husband were in town. His being out is a little bit of a game changer.

Hello layknee, how are you? How did it go? Are you resting comfortably? I probably should stop with the barrage of questions

The pain has been minimal and usually controlled with a Tylenol. I take lots of naps and don't do a lot around the house. Truthfully, I've just been scrapbooking and sleeping.

I forgot to mention that when I do start to hurt I walk on my treadmill for ten minutes to see if that helps any, it usually does. :)

I left a message over on the other thread. I'm doing okay I was having some incisional pain and maybe some gas pain. They took me off of the PCA today around 430pm. I am now taking Norco 7.5 mg liquid oral medication. Trying to get down this post-234841-14133255992031_thumb.jpgI infiltrated two IVs already so I'm on my third IV. Miss my kids. They won't let anyone under 18 up here because of the enterovirus that's been spreading among gradeschool kids.

I do have my own room though. chicken broth is disgusting because there's no salt or pepper in it.

Of course I still do not like sugar-free Jell-O. post-234841-14133258625149_thumb.jpgchanged into my pajamas. My O2 sats staying in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Trying to keep up with my deep breathing and coughing exercises. They took my catheter out. Went to the bathroom on my own. Walked up and down the hallway.
