Day 4 Post-op

I am feeling better today! I continue taking pain medication every 6 hours, alternating between the hydrocodone and tylenol. I also continue taking the nausea medication as well as omeprazole for gas and folbic to help prevent clotting. I've got my compression socks on and belly support. I totally do not look like a 'grandma'. Totally.

I'm going to take my first post-op shower today. DON'T JUDGE! I have not felt up to it until today.

Pain-wise, I definitely feel better. I am even out of bed today, sitting on the couch like a real human being. I think it will all be down hill from here, in respect to the recovery process. I knew it,... I've got this.
