I’ve been feeling a lot of pain this weekend. Friday night I was just sore where my stitches are, but the pain set in by the time I woke up Saturday morning.
There’s pain across my lower back, but it’s a different kind of pain than before. I was definitely more miserable yesterday than today, but I still hurt a ton. And today I also have pain in the upper part of my legs. The pain pills are only doing so much, and he gave me a lesser dosage than what I’m normally used to.
I’m bummed out because I read about and talked to these people who were like instantly better the day after surgery, and I’m not like that. I understand it’s back surgery and that’s a huge deal, laser procedure or not. And my mom reminded me that no two people are alike and no two backs are alike and no two procedures are alike, so I can’t compare myself to them. I know, I know. But I just wanted this pain to be gone. They did a lot of stuff back there, and I guess I just need to give it more time. I’m just tired of hurting and of being in pain. I mean, it’s gotta go away because I don’t think there’s even much left back there anyway!
All I’ve been doing is resting and waiting for an improvement. Mark’s out getting groceries and has been doing the usual stuff around here, thankfully. I’m just sooo over this nonsense. I want my life, mobility, and independence back. Right now I have an ice pack strapped to me and a frown on my face. Yuck.
