I'm heading back to my parent's house tonight. I have an appt with my NS tomorrow at 10:15. Had an appt with the PM tom, but that got cancelled. That's OK, not too excited about getting back in a car.
While I was so excited about coming home last Friday, I've been feeling so terrible since then
I really can't be certain if it's the car ride that I mentioned earlier or if it's just regular post op pains. I have a terrible pain running along the length of my incision (about 7 inches) downward, and across from the incision outward to my hip on the right side only. Really strange pain. It completely subsides when I lie down and is horrific when I attemp to walk. If I can try to describe it accurately- it is excruciating when my leg is brought backward in the attempt to take a foreward step and also the whole time my right leg is being brough forward. Sorry for the long description, just want to know if anybody can relate..?..I was walking A LOT more at their house than I am at my house as they have a long, long cement driveway and I don't. I've been walking throughout my house, but it's just not the same. I don't think this has anything to do with the pain because it started just as soon as I got out of the car, getting back from their house. Again, just 1.1 miles away
I can't determine if it's muscle pain, bone pain, or a combination of both. When I press on the area with my hand it causes no pain from the outside. I can, though, feel it somewhat where the brace comes into direct contact with it. Any ideas?
Xrays will be done tomorrow. Just hope everything is still where it's supposed to be!
