A little more pain today
I suspected it might be different when the numbing medicine totally wore off and sure enough, this morning it hurt a lot. It makes sense when someone has been digging around in your skin even though she didn't have to dig that far.
It reminds me of my last Cesarean with Katie when they had put morphine in with my IV. For a long time afterwards I thought wow, this is great, it's not going to hurt like the others. I was pretty comfortable until I started to itch like crazy all over. Then a nurse told me it was a reaction to the morphine. I got something for the itch and sure enough after the morphine wore off I needed something for the pain.
This morning I was going to drive to the Kraft Blood Donor Center for ECP but I took an oxycodone and called an Uber.
I'm not going to take another though. I brought some Tylenol but Ellen the PA said ibuprofin will work better so I'll get some when I leave. I'm also trying to balance an ice pack on my shoulder to get some cold on my face but it isn't working too well.
The woman in the bed next to me knows someone from my high school. I told her some of the things I did in high school in New York such as telling my parents I was sleeping at a friends when I was really at my boyfriend's. Tina, my nurse, said she never knew.
Last time I was here, my arm didn't hurt at all. With about an hour left it has gotten painful so I'm going to have to flag someone down. You never know from week to week.
