So we are finally home which is good....but not as good as we had hoped. I think the entire trip home was more activity than Em has seen since the surgery so that definitely did not help her control her nausea or pain levels.
Oh, and there is that other thing about the pain med reduction. Since the hospital has discharged her they want to ensure she is getting better and not just relying on the medications. Her pain med was changed from an immediate release to a slow release and the dose amount was cut in half. For her muscle relaxation and nausea medication, it was move from taking every 4 and 6 hours to taking every 6 and 8 hours, respectively.
So going home has not been as great as we had hoped but it is still good because she has been resting when she can. It may be a few more days for the pain / nausea to subside and at that point she may be able to do more. But for now she is very limited.
Please send your thoughts/prayers to her to help her through these tough days in hopes that her body quickly recovers to reduce the amount of pain she is in.
To sum it up she just told me "I feel everything".
