Monday (Post Op Day 7)

The doc came in this morning and said that I could either go home today or tomorrow. I was still on the PCA pump and pushing it quite a bit, and I was still having more trouble walking than I had before. He decided to do a CBC to make sure that everything was ok, and then we would see how I was tolerating the pain medicine. He prescribed Percocet 5/325 - 2 tablets every 4 hours. I took two doses of that but I was still having pain of a 5 or 6 when walking.

We decided to stay one more night to make sure my pain was controlled and that I was going to be able to sleep ok. He increased my dosage to Percocet 7.5/325 and it was better walking around that night. I also had a little more dinner with some soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. I slept pretty well on the pain medicine which was another worry I had. I was very glad to have stayed the night. I felt so much more comfortable going home after the dosage change and the good night of sleep.

Mike came and did a run of stuff back to the house so that we didn't have so much left. Ready to go home tomorrow!
