UPDATE!!! Read if you care about how i'm doing lol ❤️ also please do not feel sorry or bad for me. I am not doing this for attention as well. I just want to tell people things that sometimes other have never experienced and things that are rare that happen.
Hey everyone! I am still alive! It's been 20 days since my surgery and i'm doing better. I went to target today and my ribs started to hurt after about an hour or less in but I got the magazine with WDW in it so :) It's so hard sometimes when you can't do regular life things like getting into a truck, going shopping for so long (I had a wheelchair one time), being comfortable.. I am always so uncomfortable! I went to Nashville recently (if you saw my story) and I was feeling great until the last few days I was feeling terrible. I was in so much pain the day before we drove down there but when I was there.. I felt great and I finally got to sleep in a regular bed! It took me a couple nights to get where I was laying flat on the bed. No pillows behind my back! IT WAS AMAZING! I accomplished a goal! That might be a terrible one but when you can't lift nothing more than 7 pounds (I still do, that's bad) and you have to use your abs to get up and try not to re break your sternum or crack your ribs and you get less and less medicine.. that goal just makes me so happy ❤️ it feels good but painful at the same time! You know what I mean?! 😂 I think the key to my recovery is positivity and thinking about what i'm going to love after this next year is over. This is a long, hard, painful recovery. I have a bar in my chest for 6 months which is December when they take it out then another 6 months of recovery. Also I don't know if I told this but my doctor/surgeon told my parents after the surgery that I was more severe than he thought my chest was to my heart. I think if I didn't get this surgery and I am still growing that it would have gone into my heart and you know what would happen. that took a big hit on me knowing that I could have died from my normal self growing wrong. ALSO my doctor didn't tell me that this was the 2nd most painful surgery to get next to a spinal something like! WHAT! K i'm done dm me any ?
