Im 5 weeks pot op and feeling quite down today. Pain is back up after a few good days. Even went to the park with my kids. Could be why Im down and out today. Think the lack of doing "anything" is getting to me. I am not released to PT yet. Im sad, so very sad. My life seems to be moving by me. I stopped, it kept going. I can feel myself getting dependent on the pain meds, pain creeps in faster, I get naseaus,
As I type my little one, almost 3 is psushing buttons on my hospital bed, looking to "play" with me and Im getting irritated because it hurts. I keep popping ito the chat room hoping someone is in there that can relate. I try s hard not to use facebook as a place to vent...there is always someone there. I find myself looking for positive passages or qquck witted things to say just to spark some conversation.
I read so many posts, know I am doing quite well, I am grateful...just very depressed today.
