Josie and Gosia (such a pretty name),

I wanted to wait until I was thru the worst of it before I wrote again. I hope that I am. I was really starting to get panicky because I had not had a BM since the surgery, and I thought this just can't be a good thing! So, lucky me, I got to have three of them today, the last one being by far the worst. But I feel much better now. I think I was feeling sick from not going. And I have been having a lot of difficulty with urination, too. Did you have that, Gosia? That seems to have kind of straightened out. Maybe that was making me sick, too. I've had quite a bit of nausea, but not actually vomiting. It's kept me from being able to eat or drink much.

I stopped with the narcotics after the first 24 hours and just went with tylenol and the lidocaine cream, and that made the pain tolerable. It wasn't until late today that I was able to sit at all since I'm not allowed to sit on a donut. I have been doing sitz baths, but they don't really seem to make much difference for me. Now I'm doing without the lidocaine cream for the last few hours. Maybe I was ODing on lidocaine and that was making me sick? Anyway, it's the 5th day and the pain is just now starting to ease up significantly.

I haven't looked very closely yet. I can tell that the skin tag is missing. Yippee! I know there was a stitch or two involved with that. As far as the internal hemorrhoid that was removed, I don't have a clue how she closed that wound. I'll ask her when I see her Tues. From what I can see and feel, I don't have any area of open wound like Gosia has described. I would imagine you had a different kind of procedure or something, Gosia. Having that open area certainly would make your recovery much more difficult! I definitely feel for you!

Anyway, I hope things continue to improve and I get over this sick feeling. That's just the worst.

I'll keep you updated. Thanks for the well wishes and thoughts. :)

Susan
