hey spiney friends,
Well, Ive been home now since Friday afternoon. I came home still on oxygen as they couldn't get it regulated. I am also going to be having a sleep study done at some point for sleep apnea which just appeared for the first time after my surgery. I havent been hungry or able to eat since then either. The thought of food makes me very naseated :sick:
Since the lack of oxygen gets worse with the stronger meds I take I had to take weaker drugs and deal with it. The pain was immense and I wished someone would just stop all the pain.
My husbands been home so far with me and I thank god for him cause I dont think I could do it without him.
Each day I seem to get a lil stronger but its going to take a longgggggg time.
