Yup, I lived through it. I won't lie...it was the worst overnight of my life, but this morning is looking brighter so far. My IV monitor beeped nonstop if I moved, I couldn't get enough to drink no matter what, and I now know what a 10 feels like on the old pain scale.
Today, though, I got up for the second time and the pain may have hit 7 or 8, but was back down to the 3-4 range as soon as I was back in bed. THAT, I can handle. The adjustment to my meds must have worked.
As much as I complain about fasting, I still don't feel like eating, but they make me eat a saltine with the Percocet. I think I'll probably want to eat at some point today. I also think I want to go home. I'm kinda scared to, but I want to. Survivor is recorded on my DVR, you know. Lol.
