On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

Improving slowly March 13, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — onbeyondcancer @ 8:15 pm

Just a quick update.  I’ve been feeling a bit better each day, but I am still taking painkillers round the clock and having trouble getting in and out of bed and chairs.  This surgery was quite a bit more difficult than my previous laparoscopic one, probably because of the location.  The first night home I slept on one of those wedge pillows and getting out of bed was really hard.  Last night I was able to use my regular pillow.  I have been using my cane to give myself a boost out of bed.  I also have switched from two pain pills at a time to just one.  My mother in law or mom have been here since I got home from the hospital because we have needed lots of help.  I’ve been taking lots of afternoon naps.  Wednesday a few former coworkers brought lunch and we had a nice time.  Also while the kids haven’t shown me much mercy, they have been especially gentle near me.
