Did PT exercises on my own today along with 8 big laps around the yard. Sitting is still quite painful on the right side even after only a couple of minutes. It is distressing to think that I might have traded one excruciating pain for a totally different one. But I remind myself that I’m only a week post op and to be patient.
I managed to stay up all day today for the first time since the procedure. Changing positions in bed is getting easier each day (Yay!). I don’t feel quite so “broken”.
Had a nurse home visit today and reported the swelling (my “egg”😀) near the incision and leg numbness. Still waiting to hear what this might represent. Hopefully, it will be insignificant and resolve.
