Just thought I'd do a quick post to let people know that I am home and ok after my surgery on Wednesday. I had an overnight stay as they messed with my normal pain medication due to a slightly longer surgery than normal. It meant I suffered a lot more on waking than I should have done and it took a good 12 hours to get my pain properly under control again.
I probably won't know if the surgery has improved things or not until the pain from the surgery dies down, so maybe a couple of weeks.
I'm just so happy to be home and have a good night's sleep under my belt, as my night in the hospital was punctuated by lots of people being properly ill. It was the first time I had tried to sleep on this type of ward as I have either been lucky enough to be in a single occupancy room or on wards where people were like me and only had to stay a few days in hospital for small and planned procedures.
I feel much better now I've had a good meal (hospital food still isn't improved at all), a good night's sleep in my own bed and a lovely hot shower. I am so grateful to have my new laptop as I can lounge on the sofa and get up to date with my favourite blogs, it makes feeling back to normal much easier.
Hopefully in the next week or so I'll be back to normal, but I do have a post scheduled on Monday, 8th October, so please come back and check that out.
