It was somewhat more comfortable supported on a long sofa than sitting up in bed. Although I had to have the fan on as the hot flushes had returned.
It was enough to shatter me and soon after dinner I wanted to get back to bed.
I woke twice during the night drenched in sweat and having to change. I am needing to go for a wee more often but this is normal when you have a stent. Just having to remember to drink more to compensate.
I can feel a bit more gas floating about when I turn over but it’s definitely better than it was. I am a bit fearful of my first bowel movement when it comes too.
It’s my first day at home by myself which feels a bit odd but hubby has made my lunch and left all I need.
I sent a few messages to people last night letting them know what had happened during the op and I have had some lovely supportive messages.
Now I know there will be healing emotionally to go through but this will happen in its own time. Just coming to terms with the physical changes is part one.
