First the good news...... The surgical site healed nicely. The site in the front never gave me any problem - no pain at all. The 5 inch long incision down my back has always given me a great deal of pain but it healed well and after a small scare there has been no infection.
We are now just having to deal with pain control. I saw my regular doctor a couple days ago and was in tears from the pain. She changed my pain meds. I am in less pain now when I lie down but the pain quickly becomes a 9 when I walk or stand. I can sit with an ice pack to my back and keep the pain about a 4 and be able to watch TV with my husband and not feel so isolated.
Must go. Arms are starting to hurt. Will update you later.
Thank you for your prayers and kind messages. They mean so much to me.
