I managed to stay off Rx pain pills yesterday and today. I took Tylenol three times yesterday but that was it, no other pain pills. That's not to say the pain is gone, but now it feels more like I ran a really hard race and my body is sore, no longer piercing pain like Tuesday night and all day Wednesday.
But as the physical pain became more tolerable yesterday, I was having a harder time emotionally. Not overwhelmingly bad, but definitely feeling the emotional effects of the surgery. I'm hoping the second day of being clear-headed and less pain will help. I was able to shower finally yesterday afternoon and I shaved today. I think getting back into a normal routine will be a big help.
Jogging seems unlikely before Tuesday, maybe even later. But perhaps I'll feel much better by Sunday and that will change. I'm looking forward to walking Bica around a few times today, I think that will help too.
