Day 4 post op 💕
Last night was a bit rough,I found out the hard way that it's imperative to keep up with your pain relief throughout the night,I was taking my pain relief before I went to sleep but not keeping up with it throughout the night so whenever I would wake up my pain would hit me full force. 💔 So I have now set alarms every couple of hours so i make sure I have some pain relief on board! 😷 Swell hell is still crazy specially around my upper waist but each day it's definitely improving,when I compare my progress photos I can definitely see a difference each day so that's really encouraging 💖
My hemoglobin levels are still low,they should be around 120 and mine are sitting at 74,so going on iron tablets and being closely monitored still! ( hopefully no more blood transfusions) 💉
I still have all 3 drains in as well as my vac machine,the drains will stay in until they are draining under 30ml and they are no where near that at the moment unfortunately! But it's a necessary evil.
Physically I'm fighting through but mentally it's still very much struggling,I think it's only now just hitting me with how serious things had gotten on Thursday night as well as my MS flaring up it's a battle, But one I will win! 👊
I'm keeping positive and letting myself lean on others for support too. I know in a couple months time I'll look back and be so damn proud of myself 💖
I'm loving my new tummy each and everyday day,I'm honestly in awe! 😍
