Still on the pain-5

Hi,

Date: December 30, 2011.

Day 39 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas (bruises) are looking much better now…

 

Next week, on January 05, 2012 I will have a new control in the hospital… I should know more about then…

Day 32 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas (bruises) are looking much better now…

 

One day before Christmas, pain is still there 😦 Hematomas (bruises) are looking much better and there where one sees still the hematomas the pain is nearly gone… But now pain in genitals and lower part are is becoming very strong… 7-8/10 on pain scale 😦

 

 


Still on the pain-3

Date: December 19, 2011.

Day 28 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas are looking much better now…

Since the surgery I lost 5 Kg of weight, not sure if this is normal (???)… On January 5, 2012 I will have a new control and I will check my weight and report it to the doctor… I will need also to make an Endoscopy as I have big troubles with my stomach due to the masses of drugs I needed during the last months…

My life quality: Do I have still some?

Hi,

Life quality, do I still have some? Since at least 4 months certainly not anymore 😦 or very little… Two surgeries in 3 month time which gave me a lot of sleepless nights because of huge pain (even with drugs…), who were difficult surgeries and so I couldn’t move a lot nor driving a car for minimum 3 weeks (that was hard, no liberty…) and with the last surgery, the inguinal hernia surgery I am still coping with and this after already one month after the surgery… Watch published images and you will understand…

But today I took the courage (even with pain) to visit two Xmas markets in Luxembourg (Europe), my country… I was driving the car (I was feeling FREE again, liberty…) for +/- 70 Km (+/- 44 miles), WOW what a feeling… 🙂 Like new born kid, LOL 😉

Nearly 4 months without driving a car, without seeing friends, staying at home without going out, with a lot of pain, without being able to do any sort of work at home, ONLY sitting behind the computer to pass time… I was feeling like unchained, feeling like a flying bird…

Even that I met some friends on those markets, good talk and a lot of laughing together (good for the moral…)… I feel a bit happy now 🙂 Meeting real humans is better than only meeting people on Internet…

I took some photos from those two markets and I created also a blog about, you may check out here:

Still on the pain-2

Date: December 16, 2011.

Day 25 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas are looking much better now…

Not anymore that much pain where the hematomas are but still a lot of pain in the genitals, but at last they are on normal size again… On day 2 after the surgery they were about 3-5 times bigger as the normal size and that wasn’t funny at all 😦 For 3 weeks time I had big problems with that… Women won’t have that much problems when getting a surgery of hernia(s), but men will…
