Not good at all. I spent the first 24 hours writhing in agony, screaming at every movement and crying each time I realized I needed to go pee. Had to increase pain pills to every 3 hours instead of 4 and had to add 4 advil 3 times a day. Finally today I at least feel lucid. I am not going to lie--yesterday I questioned myself if I had made the right decision. No dislocation that I have ever experienced hurt as badly as I hurt yesterday.
This trumps childbirth BY FAR!!!!
But the doc did tell Jason that the first two days would be hard. So I am trying to stay positive and remind myself that it WILL heal with time.
We still havent unwrapped dressings. We will do that tomorrow while girls are at school so that Jason can bathe me and put clean bandages back on my leg. Curious and scared at the same time to see what it looks like. It burns. At the incision sites--burns like fire. Pray for continued healing and relief.
