Re: Surgery on 11/30 - Im scared!

Sorry you were in the hospital and glad you are feeling better now.

I feel great for 10 days after surgery. I do get loose bowels if I eat too much fat, specifically, anything with butter in it. I am trying to eat low fat yet.

My annoying hurdle has been itching! I first experienced itching thanks to the pain meds I was prescribed. And now, I am having a reaction to the steri-strips they used over my incisions. The strips are off of me and I am still itcing like crazy in those area. Doc said to use cream and benedryl. Benedryl isn't an option since it knocks me out and I have a baby to take care of. I know this is minor and will go away, but when the rest of me is feeling great, having to itch itch itch all the time is really wearing on me!
