Tomorrow is my follow-up on my surgery, to take the bandages off and to check that everything is healing well. I'm ready for it. This past week has been both good and bad - good in being able to take it easy, but bad because I discovered hydrocodone gives me awful headaches and my recovery got compounded by my period showing up on schedule. I switched over to ibuprofen Monday night, but my mood is all out of whack so when the meds don't work as well, I get all teary.
It'll all be worth it in the end, I know. It's just frustrating right now. My shoulders ache because I've been using crutches to get around when I need to, I want to soak in a hot tub desperately and can't, and I'm feeling isolated because of sleeping and doing everything in the guest room instead of mine.
