Post-Op (One Week)

Well it’s been almost a week since my surgery last Wednesday. I’m still experiencing a lot of pain which is normal and expected. What I am having the most trouble with is the amount of saliva the post op is producing. I am unable to sleep a good night’s sleep because I have to spit it out on a constant basis…I don’t want to drown in it. That wouldn’t be good.

Of course, I am still on a liquid diet, which I also expected. But geeze willy, I sure do want a cheeseburger! (kidding).

Medication is making me drowsy. I actually fell out of bed this morning while I was attempting to get out of bed.

I’ve heard the pain will last up to three weeks. I still can’t talk…

But I am thankful that the surgery did go well.
