Day 4

Feeling the same today, no better but no worse... My heating pad and pillow on my belly are my best friends. I woke up at 3:30 am to pain but I couldn't take anything for it because I had just taken hydromorphone at midnight. The pain wasn't excruciating, just uncomfortable. So I tried to go back to sleep and woke up again at 6:30 and took my drugs.

My incision is starting to itch a little bit. Really annoying because obviously I can't scratch it. I also got a little emotional yesterday. I am walking a little bit around my house but have not ventured outside yet. Maybe tomorrow I will go out to get the mail*

*maybe not.

You should start feeling measurably better each day from hear on out. At least I did......I've had two c-sections and two abdominal surgeries and recovery was about the same for all of them physically.

Hang in there, you're doing great!
