I was fine after the surgery but beforehand I experienced the worst pain of my life. I have benn taking it easy but I think I overdid it Saturday. Shopped Super Walmart (hubby pushed cart and lifted everything) but I walked forever the did about 5 loads of dishes. I go back to see my surgeon tomorrow. I am still a little sore gave me more antibiotics for a week and lortab for pain. It is weird how the pain was not that bad after surgery. I didn't take all the pain meds that were offered. I have 3 incisions- two with 3 staples and one drain hole that has actually almost closed on its own. I still feel gassy and bloated though. I just can't stand wearing pants due to the positioning of the wounds. The drain hole doesn't hurt but the ones with staples itch. I think they will be taking them out tomorrow. The worst thing was when the nurse yanked out the drain tube. I think the skin had started growing to it. I screamed , grabbed her hands abd begged her to stop . I wonder when I will be released back to work. Hopfully not for another few days. Not in too much pain just exausted more than normal. Anyone had this experience? If so when were you realesed to go back to work or regular activity and why still so bloated?
