Day 1 update
Today has been interesting, I didn’t really sleep that well last night so I’ve been having little catnaps throughout the day. My pain was fine this morning but it got worse after I got out of bed, and I was sick on my way back from the bathroom. I’ve been using my PCA a lot more now but the nurse said it’s normal given it’s so early after surgery. My brainfog has returned but I think that’s due to being so tired.
On the positive side, I’m not nil-by-mouth! I’m not allowed solid foods yet but I’m on free liquids which includes jelly and ice cream. Also, I’m able to move. I’m very slow but I can get to my feet with help and move around a bit when sat or laid down on my own.
Not going to lie, today has been hard and all I’ve wanted to do is curl up into a ball and sleep. However, the nurses have been great so I can’t complain.
