(19-03-15) Healing Pains

Wish i had better news to share, but i just don’t right now. Since i have returned from the hospital, i have been holed up in my room, barely able to get out of bed except to go to the bathroom every hour, on the hour, day and night. Meals and drip bags are brought up to my room, as i just lie here. I’m afraid to move; when i do, there is this sharp pain in my abdomen, and i don’t know if it is normal. The doctors here just say it’s gas and part of my healing process from the surgery. It still scares me, though. They put me back on a liquid-only diet… which is fine because it hurts my stomach every time i try to eat anyway. I wish i could just sleep through this, but sleep has eluded me for several days now. I can’t sleep, can’t shower, can’t dress myself … All i can do is lie very still on my back and hope no sneezes, coughs, or bowel movements need to happen for a while.

Traveling this weekend is going to be an experience. I just keep thinking of my sweet pets waiting for me at home, and that helps.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Invasive Breast Cancer in October/November, 2015. This blog is my way to process my experience and allow my loved ones to have ongoing updates about my journey.

  1. Awww sweetie I wish I could take all your pain away. It probably is gas if I remember correctly the same thing happened to me. I wish that you didn’t have to travel so far and in your condition. And I wish I could tell you that you’ll be ok and the ride is not that bad. But the truth is the ride is going to be long and suck so see if they will give you xtra pain meds to leave with for the ride and double up if you can. I love you and I’m happy that you will finally get to see your fur-babies soon.
