I celebrated Valentine's Day by having my lap band removed. I got to the hospital at 6:30 AM and didn't leave until 6:30 PM.
Dr Marvin had to make 6 incisions to dig that gizmo out of me. The incisions are small but they really hurt.
Today I got into my car to go to an appointment. I almost didn't make it. Getting out of the car hurt so much. I didn't take any pain meds so that I would be able to drive. I had a couple of other stops that I had planned to make but instead I came right home.
I called my boss to tell her that I wouldn't be in tomorrow. If I could be "beamed" to the office, I would be able to work. It's amazing how many motions we make everyday in which we use our abdominal muscle:.getting in and out of a car, in and out of chair, in and out of bed, walking, reaching, standing, etc. etc.
It's boring sitting around waiting to feel better!
