Tummy Tuck Recovery Day 3
I woke up in my bed at 6 this morning and moved to the couch. I spent most of the day napping, drinking fluids, taking pain meds, vitamins,drinking collagen, and taking brief walks around the house.
I talked to my brother on the phone for a little while which was awesome, and I planned to do a little online Christmas shopping but quickly realized it was more than I could handle, so I took a nap instead.
Ryan’s been killing the nurse game- my meds are ready when I need them, he’s patient and gentle, and super cute. This would be way, way more difficult without him. Having him by my side has made it, daresay, enjoyable .
Pain Level: High but not as high as it has been. Really unclear, I know. I’d say it’s been a 6-7, mostly around an almost 7. That’s definitely the lowerst it’s been so far! Swelling is still the same.
Activity Level: Low, but much higher than yesterday. I did walk myself to and from the bathroom multiple times, walked to let Jax in and out, and walked to the kitchen to refill my water jug a few times.
Ry has a full day at work tomorrow so that’ll be interesting for me. I’m still so, so happy I decided to do this!
