The surgery went well this morning. So far there's no sign of cancer but they have to test it in the lab to make sure, along with the lymph nodes they removed.
It's been a frustrating day having to stay in bed, only getting up for the bathroom. And then I walk like a baby, not moving too fast yet. I know, like I expect to be able to run a mile already...lol.
If it wasn't for my laptop, I'd be going crazy with boredom as there hasn't been anything on tv that has interested me to watch. So I've been keeping up with email and Sparkpeople.
Hopefully they'll let me go home early tomorrow morning. Highly unlikely, I know. Even then, I know I'll have to stay down, at least for a couple of days. No weight bearing at all. No lifting anything heavier than a glass of water for probably at least a week. I am drinking plenty of water, by the way.
I'm not happy about the pain though. I can't take the usual pain meds, percocet(?) or vicoden as they make me crazy and darvocet was taken off the market, so they're giving me ibuprophen, which isn't really helping.
Well, that's where I am at this moment. Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers. They've pulled me through the anxiety knowing that my friends are here for me. I thank you all so much!! And thank you to my husband and son for being here for me. I love you both!!
