    Default Rough day.... And now night

    So this afternoon I had the worst pain... Knew it was gas/needed a bowel movement but no matter what I did I couldn't go. I would sit or lay and feel as if I was going to explode in my pants but by the time I got to toilet nothing! Sorry for tmi... I was like sweating and just so uncomfortable... So DH was here and he was supposed to leave to get DD to spend some time with her but then he couldn't leave me which made me feel awful because she's been away so much this weekend. Finally I had a great bowel movement and then showered and felt so much better. I had been only doing 1 Percocet and i think I was trying to brave it too much. So I went to 2 at 5 and again at 9. Before bed I was super sad... DD cried a lot for me so much that I decided not to call before bed and I just miss her and DH so much... We don't usually stay away from each other in our 9 yrs of marriage only ave for 3 night when I went to TN with my best friend. So now I am awake from pain and going pee but just took more Percocet and Motrin which I hadn't had my last dose of due to being asleep. I think at the other hospital I was taking the meds more and here trying to do without for some reason and may have set myself back a bit. Being away for Easter is just making it hard too. DH is going to FaceTime with me to see her expression in the morning

    Thanks for listening and reading my rant... You ladies are great support

    I am so sorry you are in pain! Sucks to be missing Easter with dd as well. Tell the nurses to wake you up when you are able to take the pain meds and try to schedule them split apart so you get better coverage for the pain.

    Just think, you get to spend some special time with Rylee all to yourself on Easter morning.

    and YEAH for a shower! Great feeling isn't it.

    Thanks cristan... I know in my mind I avoid pain meds from my parents being drug addicts but I need to remind myself this was major surgery and I am not them. It is why I even hate taking allergy meds regularly... When my parents were clean I still remember my mom almost abusing Benadryl to make her sleep and taking like 3 at a time.

    Nurse is waking me and we staggered the Percy's and Motrin!

    Ouch that sounds awful. Glad you are better now and had a shower.

    It must be hard to be separated from your family, especially on a holiday. Not too much longer til you are all reunited!

    I hope that you are feeling better today and that your pain is better managed. I understand about not wanting to take pain meds although I don't have the added experience of being close with an addict. I turned down all of the pain meds in the hospital after both T and R were born other than Ibuprofen because I didn't want to take anything that would make me foggy. But you are recovering from major surgery and it is important that you take good care of yourself right now. (((Hugs))) I'm sorry you have to be away from your family right now too. When do you get to go home?

    That sounds awful. recovering from a c-section is no fun, I remember some surprising pains. I'm glad you're starting to feel a bit better. (((hugs)))
