I 'broke down' last night and took a Vicodin before bed. I haven't taken anything in days, and the pain was creeping right up around 4, so I decided it was alright.
I took a Zofran at the same time to avoid getting nauseated. Besides the pain in my side (still primarily the left side), I was getting a nasty headache. That's really what pushed me over the edge, was the headache.
Well, I took it at about 9pm, and at 1am was still awake and still in pain!! UGH. I ended up falling asleep shortly thereafter, but was kind of annoyed that it hadn't helped the pain. I believe my script says I can take one OR two every four hours, so I could have taken another one, but I was so snug and comfortable in bed, wedged in with DH on one side and the two dogs on the other, that I didn't want to get out of bed. It was alright. I got some sleep and felt a little better in the AM when I got up.
Today I'm not having so much pain (although still with the headache, grrrrr) but I have this feeling . . . IDK how to describe it. It feels like my cervix is irritated. I actually get this feeling part of every cycle, so maybe it's just that? I'm not bleeding or anything. I suppose it could be stitches working their way out already, if I have internal stitches (not sure yet if my surgeon used sutures or glue, I'll find out on Monday). I'll just rest a little more today and keep an eye on it and see what happens. It's not pain, just a little pressure.
So . . . yeah. My appetite is waning again a bit as well, which you won't hear me complaining about!! I was craving Chinese food yesterday, so had a big plate of sweet and sour chicken, and rice, and an egg roll for supper. OM NOM NOM! That hit the spot. And then, we were out of flavored water and didn't have any Kool-Aid or anything made, so I had a can of diet Dew. Then another. Then another. And man could I feel it!! I haven't had much caffeine since surgery, and three cans was a *bit* much at once. Anyway . . . this AM the three of us went out for breakfast. I got two pancakes (pumpkin pecan pancakes . . . yum!) and could only eat one and a half. I'm down five pounds now from my pre-op weight, yet still could pass for being six months' pregnant. Fun!
Not much planned for today. I thought I had a writing assignment due, but I don't. I do have a test to take for music class before tomorrow, but I'm not worried about it.
I might have to go take an ibuprofen. This headache is getting a tad more than annoying . . .
