I woke up this morning and my incision was hurting. I went to check it and there was puss and blood everywhere. I cleaned it up and put another large bandage on it. I think that it is still draining on occasion. In any event, I'll make an appointment to see my primary care physician tomoorrow to take a look at it. Also, I need more pain meds, although I am going to request that he give me soemthing other than the Oxi. The Oxi makes me constipated and it makes me have such vivid wild dreams. I've actually done well with the pain meds. He gave me 30 and told me to use 1-2 at a time every 4-6 hours. I've been using 2 every six hours and it has done wonders to keep my pain under control. I went 14 hours yesterday and paid for it this morning when I woke up.

I've been doing wonderfully with recording my foods and water intake. I have not been able to exercise and that will have to come on gradually.

I start back to work tomorrow. My release is to return to full duty, but I was told if I cannot do it, that I can get another note. Thank heavens my employer is very good about this. Well after all I do work with injured workers and people every day. After being gone for almost two weeks unexpectedly I hate to see my desk. But I will plow through what I can.

Supposed to be going to a BBQ and making potato salad today. I'm just going to buy it. I usually am the one running around and organizing things and helping out, but I told my friend Stephanie that I cannot do it. I intend to relax.

    If the incision is feeling hot to the touch in addition to draining, consider going to Urgent care or the emergency room. The sooner an infection can be brought under control, the better! Glad you are doing well with the pain meds, and TAKE IT EASY! emoticon
