Well, surgery was completed on Friday, March 16th. I would like to say it was easy. But it wasn’t. It has been a very difficult weekend.
I was seeing double from the time I left the hospital until a while after I got home.
The anesthesia made my back hurt so bad on Friday night when I went to bed. I know that is a side effect. I also has left a metallic taste in my mouth, which is just gross. My ears finally quit ringing this morning.
The pain is definitely more intense. Hydrocodone eases the pain after the nerve block wears out. But if you take too many you will feel worse.
It kind of feels like being hit by a mack truck. I know I need to look at the big picture…and I am trying. But I don’t think I would ever want to go through this again.
