I’ve been home for a week now… Today I will go back to the hospital to have my blood drawn and my incision looked at. It’s been a VERY long week, every day having stomach issues and migraines (I literally had 3 on Wednesday). I’m hoping that they can adjust my medications because this stinks.
I can’t believe it’s 2015 and we are still using drugs like morphine. It’s the worst!
I tried to explain to them that I didn’t want to take it, but they thought the benefits outweighed the risks. I took it 3 times-
Day 1- Christmas Day in the hospital, I climbed out of the foot of the hospital bed, and removed all of my IVs.
Day 2- at home, I couldn’t sleep, because I was so uncomfortable. I took it and had crazy dreams about hiding drugs from the mafia. It was absurd. It took me a long time to figure out that it was a dream.
Day 3- I had a dream that I worked for the White Sox. I was trying to get some game-day socks for people, it was stupid.
Dear pharmaceutical companies, let’s make a pain pill that blocks pain, doesn’t constipated and doesn’t make people feel crazy. So far everything you have made totally sucks.
I’ve had a visiting nurse come to the house every day to measure my INR level, to make sure the anticoagulants are preventing my blood from prematurely coagulating. I missed a dose on Wednesday, and it has been too low every day since. Hopefully, it is back up to the right level today… It would be nice to have a few days off of blood checks. I don’t know how people do it every day.
Wake me up in a month
