Lisa’s Blog: 1st Night of Recovery

March 8th, 2010

My surgery is over and I’m happy to be home and on the road to recovery, although I look miserable in this photo!

The first night of surgery went pretty well. I took my pain medication and stayed on top of that. I do have to say; I was counting down the hours till morning to take out the drains. What a relief to get them out. It’s not that the drains caused pain, but they were just uncomfortable.   I awoke to a sore throat.   I believe it was from mouth breathing throughout the night and from having the breathing tube down my throat during surgery.   Tylenol gave me relief from the sore throat and drinking a lot of water helped, too.

Check back next time to follow my recovery.
