What a strange day.
It started with several runs to the bathroom (let’s just say that the Percocet that I stopped taking isn’t constipating me any longer and leave it at that), and then a feeling of being chilled. No fever to cause the chills. In fact, my temperature was my typical below normal–97.1° F.
By midday, I was up and about around the house feeling better sitting up for a while, and then laying down for a while. The pain from the incision points is truly minimal at this point. Again, if I sit funny or twist in a funny direction, they’ll remind me that they’re there, but on the whole, it’s pretty much behind me.
As far as the incontinence goes, it seems to be getting better. When I stand (which is when I had experienced the majority of my problems yesterday), things were better today. Not perfect, but better. Fewer and smaller squirts. I really try to control my bladder sphincter through my Kegel exercises when standing.
I probably look funny, because I’ll stand in a somewhat bent position, tightening my pelvic floor muscles, and most likely have a goofy look on my face as I stand there, waiting to be sure that nothing will happen. The first three or four steps are also taken quite gingerly.
I really had planned on getting outside and taking a walk down to the end of the cul-de-sac today, but that wasn’t in the cards. Maybe tomorrow, weather permitting.
