I'm a whiny-pants

Since I have nothing useful or interesting to share at the moment, I will whine about how my guts still hurt from the lap. I had to LOL a little (gently!) at CJ's post about wanting to have sex already after her lap (which was on the same day as mine). Seriously, I can't even think about sex yet! I can barely WALK! You go, girl :)

So here is a list of things that make my still-swollen belly hurt:

-Sneezing. This is the WORST! My poor peepers are really sensitive to sunlight and I always sneeze when it's bright outside. Owieeee!

-Laughing. Last night hubs said something that made me laugh, and when he realized I thought it was funny, he kept going with it, even though I told him to knock it off because it friggin' HURT! No comedy in my life for a few more days please!

-Lying on my side. I am a side-sleeper, big time, so this majorly sucks balls. Even if I take a pain pill, I can just imagine all my organs sliding around, and the connective tissue stretching out to their limits, and - nope! Can't do it. Gotta sleep on my back.

-Atticus. My cat is SUCH a doofus. How many times do I have to push him away before he gets that he CANNOT climb on my tummy? Yesterday he stepped directly on my belly button. Which currently sports a lovely yellow halo of a bruise. Hot stuff!!

-Driving. Seriously! It's not so much the freeway ride, it's going through sharp turns, or anything else that requires the use of my abs. Okay, yeah, it would probably help if I slowed down a little. I do like to go fast!

I know, I'm a major crybaby. But this is my blog and I can whine if I want to!

On a less self-centered note, my friend J had her lap today at 1:00 and I'm hoping all went well! She's had other surgeries before so she'll probably be less of a baby than me about it :)

Hey, it's almost time to go home, and that means it's almost officially FRIDAY! Woot.

I think my lack of pain has to do with the fact the lap was basically a look around and see kinda thing. Maybe they zapped a bunch of endo off your lady parts and that's why you're still a-hurtin. The only thing that bugs me now is that my scars itch like mad.

I'm sorry that your pieces are still bugging you. I hope your pain subsides. hey, at least you got good drugs. All I got was vico.din. hahaha

I remember walking bent over for a few days.

I will never forget....you know the incision in the belly button or just above it? Well, I didn't want to "wash" it out and my doctor saw dirt in it and asked me if I bathed. DUH?? Yeah, I just didn't feel like scrubbing out my belly button at the time.

My cats did the same thing when I had my laps! Yes, they do hurt and it takes a while to fully recover. You are not a crybaby. (((HUGS))) Hopefully after the w/e you will feel rested and a little more healed.

Sorry you're still hurting!! My last lap was a couple years ago.. so I'm definitely not still sore ;) but my cat has a knack for finding my belly button. Where my scars are. And it feels weird. So I knock her off of me. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat-repeat-repeat...

They don't learn.

Hope you feel better soon!!

Ouch! After both of my laps, I got home and cooper was so excited to see me he kept jumping up on me. Nothing like a 30-lb dog punching his paws into your stomach to wake you out of a drugged stooper!

I hope you start feelin better soon, hun. ((gentle hugs))
