After I arrived home on Saturday (the day after my surgery), I took a shower and got dressed in real clothes. Something happened - I'm not sure what - but the incision on the right side started oozing a bit of blood.
It wasn't excessive or anything, so I just put a medium sized Band-Aid pad on it and kept checking it.
There was very little blood loss and nothing "unusual" looking, so I waited to call my doctor on Tuesday morning. I got a call back later in the day from his nurse that they were calling in a prescription for antibiotics and that I'm to clean the area with hydrogen peroxide. No big deal.
I just need to toss in a few more pills a day for a while. I really don't care, if it means I won't have some sort of crazy infection.
I'll just keep on keeping on. That's my MO. I'm a trooper.
I've also weaned myself down to only 1 Oxycodone a day. I take my one very early in the AM when I get up to use the restroom, then go back to bed, so I sleep most of it off. Those things make me sleepy and itchy - especially my face.
But, I feel better and better every day. I have not had the night sweats once since the operation! I'm not sure if that's normal or not, but I sure do like it!
I have to get off here, get a shower and be ready for my daily errands. :-)
I'm just SO happy! (which just proves the uterus is an evil entity - Damn Eve for eating that apple!) LOL.
