Day 95 – Wondering

So I’m wondering if this is really behind me.

After posting yesterday’s comments, my fever returned and peaked at 99.7 early last night.  So far, since midnight, the highest it’s been is 99.0.  That’s moving in the right direction.

The other thing that’s been bugging me is this discomfort in my groin.  Initially, I thought it was from the drainage tube opening, but now I’m not so sure.  I’m wondering if it’s lymph fluid building up again.

The one thing that hasn’t happened yet is an increase in incontinence.  When I was in the hospital with the infection, the fluid was putting so much pressure on my bladder that I had little control over it.  I’m really hoping that I don’t return to that state again if the fluid is building up.

Needless to say, this makes going back to work tomorrow questionable.  I’ll play it by ear, and I’ll also contact the surgeon to let him know what’s happened since pullng the drain on Thursday.

Even with all that going on, I did manage to run out and buy some new pants today (I’ve lost 20 pounds since the surgery).  The weather has been great–sunny, warm, and in the upper 50’s.

    Good Luck tomorrow for your first day back at work….. or even a half day.
    I'm assuming that you will be able to check in and at least get briefed on
    the latest. Glad to know your weather is improving. Arizona desert had
    80 at the airport and we only reached 75 in the northwest valley. Still have no problem shoveling sunshine every day. ngh who did NOT go to
    Mesa for the big concert…. a first!!!
