Tomorrow I have a check up appointment with my pain management doctor at 12:30pm and my very first post-op appointment with my surgeon at 2:15. They are both in the same building, so it's pretty convenient.
I'm nervous about driving. This will be the first time I'm driving myself anywhere since before surgery. I'm a month and 2 weeks post op. I know you aren't supposed to drive while taking narcotics, but I am so scared to not take them in case A) it hurts
I start to get withdrawal symptoms again. For those of you who are driving yourself around post-op, do you take all your pain meds on days that you will be driving?
I'm going to ask them for a copy of my XRAY so I can scan it and post it. I'm really excited and eager to see what all my hardware looks like!
Please cross your fingers for me that this will be an uneventful check up! : )
