I am starting my third week with only one drain tube and container. Pain is much lighter now, however my right side is still very sensitive. Since handling one drain is manageable, today I put on some lose clothes and drove to the farm market. This was my first escape.
I can do more around the house, however few things happen to be beyond my capacity. I opened (lifted) the window in the bedroom during the day, however closing it created a rip that made me sit for 20 min in a lot of pain. My next appointment with surgeon is Tuesday and I hope that the last drain will be removed. I think that by the end of next week I should be relatively mobile.
But every time I look into a mirror I am so glad I went through it.
