Surgery :(

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Well, I ended up having surgery on August 23rd. It was pretty painless, nothing near what I expected. I took percocet for two days then couldn't stand how it was making me feel, so I quit. The pain is tolerable so no more pills. The surgeon said that the skin tags he removed may have been making my problem worse, as one was pulling on the fissure, not allowing it to heal. I hope that he is right! I have a follow up appointment on September 9th and I'm hoping that things are healed enough for me to start doing some kind of exercise, even if it's only walking. I have been able to keep my weight from going up during this mess, but I feel like such a slug. Sitting around is pretty much over rated!

    I had to go back and read why you needed surgery. You poor lady! You have had a miserable summer but I am glad the surgery is over and wasn't as bad as you feared. Now I pray for a nice recovery so you can get on with a happy retirement! Good job on not gaining weight. I probably, as an emotional eater, would have gained several pounds.

    That's quite an accomplishment for your weight to not go up. I think a lot of times it does go up just as a result of the fluids they give a person.
