Re: One Month Post-Op and Doing Fine
Clover, glad to hear you are doing so well. I am a little over 3 weeks past my open resection and I am still swollen like I have an orange under my shirt on the left side, still have some mild to moderate pain, and my incision has been oozing steadily since the surgery, first from one section and now from another. I have indigestion causing chest pains from the pain medication. I still can't fit into my regular clothes so I still am wearing pajamas at home and yoga pants or sweat pants outside. So I'm guessing that the open surgery requires a much longer recovery time than the laser. I'm supposed to go back to work in 2 1/2 weeks and since I am a construction secretary I am required to wear jeans or work pants and boots. Not sure how yoga pants or sweat pants are going to work with that. I am hoping that I have a miraculous sudden quick recovery in the next week or so, or things will be very difficult. I know I'm whining, but I feel really good & would like to get back to normal! And also not have to bandage myself up like crazy or else I'll stain my clothes. But it's great to hear you are doing so well!
