Friday I had my deconstruction surgery at Rush. Dr. K and team removed everything on the expander side and all the bumps and knobs left on the already deconstructed side. I ended up staying the night, was nauseous from the sleeping drugs, and couldn’t get the pain quite control quite right. And, to be honest, I didn’t want to get in a car.
I was home by noon on Saturday. Slept most of the day, took a few little walks. Went to bed at 7, and got up this morning at 7. Not a lot of pain today. A deep, crunchy cough from the breathing tube, and still a bit foggy but pain is a 2 and everything feels alright.
I’m allowed to shower today. I’m afraid to look. Have one drain to contend with. 60 cc’s this morning. Probably have it all week.
I hope I’m completely flat under all the padding. I hope I’m done.
