Thanks to all for their notes. I am recovering nicely. The drugs are great! I sleep a lot. The swelling is going down some and is softening. I really did not expect to look pregnant ever again! I counted 20 staples...since my husband was too chicken! It looks ugly but the beauty is I do not have cancer! My right ovary looked fine...so it was not removed so no hormones which is great b/c that would just be one more difficult decision to make.
I am having a weird pain or sensation, however, that the doctors can not explain. It feels almost like a muscle tension headach running along the right side of my head and neck, along my right arm and shoulder and my right hand is weak. It feels like nerve pain and I have previously been diagnosed with siatica so I have nerve pain medication but it does not work on this pain. It is a constant and deep pain. It makes if hard to get confortable to go to sleep even with the drugs. But it is not getting worse. I was concerned it might be a blook clot but was assured that was not possible since it is in my upper body. So, I am riding it out til Monday and then may need to go back to the hospital if it does not resolve itself. The doctors think it may just be the way I lay when I was out for the surgery but it is not like a kink in the neck ....Has anyone else experienced this?
