Let me just say that draining all the fluid out of the left side was so painful. The actual draining was ok, but as soon as it was done, I had sharp pains immediately. These are the same sharp paralyzing stabs I experienced after my first fill. I did not expect any pain today, so I went to the appointment by myself and didn't take any meds beforehand. I am not sure how I made the hour drive back to my parents. I had to break down and take the meds when I got home, which so far, are not helping to relieve the pain or the spasms.
Things I Still Can't Do:
- Lift anything over 10lbs (I have actually been pushing this a little bit. Shh don't tell!)
- Sleep on my side, and it's still hard to get comfortable at night
- Get things off the top self
- Put C to bed or get her up
