Onward and Homeward
Dr Adams has already been in too see me. He said he took about 4-5 inches of my rib out. His physicians assistant said that one of the nerves leading down my arm was right in their way during surgery. He told me that made him glad Dr Adams was performing the surgery. Dr Adams told me I had a lot of scar tissue in the facia in that area too. He supposedly removed or broke it all though. His PA took my drain out too! Dr Adams said the sling im wearing is mostly just to keep my arm still for a couple days. He also said I could go home now!
I just finished a bit of breakfast. I'm hoping I don't lose it later to my post anesthesia nausea/vomiting. I'm a bit queasy now, but nothing like I was after my last surgery. Right now my pain level has eased done to the 5-6 range. My IV is actually hurting worse than my arm right now. I walked around the floor yesterday all by myself! The nurse is getting ready to start my paper work to go home. Yippee!
