So they decided today, I will be going back to surgery next week to get the stent out, so it was upto me, if I wanted to wait in the hospital or go home till then. I opted for home. I think that choice maybe harder than first thought.
So tired. I went up the stairs too quick when I got home without thinking. My sats dropped to the low 80's, but I found myself curled up in the fetal postion on my bed. It felt like I had a knife going through my heart. The pain was agony. I must remember to slow down.
Its so differnt getting my head around this. Usually after a big op, I have the whole adjustment of a trach to add in and it takes me about 2 weeks to begin to feel human again. This time I had a mini trach that was taken out after 24 hours. There was no adjustment and by 4 days post op, I was itching to get out and could not understand why I was still on the ward. I felt great and I felt more like I had had laser than a big op. It wasnt until I began to feel rough again, that the nurses kept reminding me that it was normal to feel rough, I had just had major surgery and a spell in ICU. I was taking to much for granted.
