I'm not quite a week out yet, so am enjoying reading all of the posts with advice, esp. regarding pain meds. I'm not sure if it was the hydrocodone that messed with my stomach, or just the surgery and anesthesia in general, but when I called my surgeon's office on Friday and said I needed something different for the pain, I guess I was kind of surprised that they switched me so quickly, plus gave me Zofran for the nausea - maybe she could hear me retching into a bag while we were on the phone. Today I kept down 2 snacks and a light dinner. Nights still seem to be tough, with my natural night owl tendencies. Seeing me getting around the house with a cane (up/down stairs to bedroom and bathroom) has my husband stoked and I'm afraid that he's going to start expecting too much of me too soon. Should I be spending more time in bed? Maybe I am up and around too much?
