Things are going pretty well so far. I didn’t need any Advil yesterday for pain- ion,y took some before bed for safe measure. The incisions aren’t very tender anymore and I have some residual gas pain in my shoulder still, which is just an annoyance. Getting the tubes removed, you’d think there would be tenderness on the inside, but I haven’t really noticed anything thus far.
Still not regretting my decision either- thankfully. I’m still flabbergasted at the thought of never worrying about pregnancy again, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it eventually. I’m looking forward to having sex with my husband for the fun of it and not having that worry in the back of my mind.
I’ve been secretly wondering when the hubby would finally through away our stash of condoms.. I half expected him to throw them out the moment I got home from surgery. I mentioned it to him yesterday, and he asked “well.. when does this become effective?” I’m sure my facial expression was priceless. REALLY?! The tubes are g-o-n-e.. it’s effective immediately! 🤦🏻♀️ the last I checked, I’m not HIGHLY fertile anyways, but apparently he thinks there’s some magical unicorn egg awaiting in my uterus. I had to explain fertility and how it all works, since I’m practically a specialist after everything we have gone through. Not sure if he believed my knowledge or not, but alas, the condoms have vacated the premises and have been thrown away 😂
The no exercising part of recovery is driving me a bit bonkers; especially since I feel pretty good. I’m allowed to walk a week after surgery for cardio. Unfortunately I live in an environment where it’s currently snowing, so not sure how much walking I’ll get in. I’m cleared for all activities 2 weeks post-op. I cannot wait!
