Pain and Packing

Wound care appointment today went better. The physical therapist did a few things to make changing the packing much more comfortable. Also, she said I had too much packing in last time which was causing irritation and making me uncomfortable. This time it’s already feeling easier to walk around and sit up.

Still slow going as far as healing. She said basically not to be discouraged because it seems very slow and suddenly it’ll jump into faster mode to heal completely. So…I wait. And attempt walking around.

The pain meds are particularly unpleasant. I only take them during the changings and nap them off afterward so I can get back to work and thinking clearly.

No medical appointments now until Friday afternoons changing. That’s a big big deal!
