Slowly But Surely, Kelly’s Journey

This story is one part of an ongoing series where NJ101.5 news reporter and anchorwoman Kelly Waldron chronicles her experiences after being diagnosed with Endometriosis. Follow “Kelly’s Journey.”

It’s been just over a week since my surgery and I’m coming along pretty well.  Over the first couple of days, one of the incisions kept bleeding, but once I got it under control, it was fairly smooth sailing from that point on.

Of course, I’m sore.  I literally stayed in bed for an entire week.  I’m up and about now, but I’m trying to take it slowly.  One of the other incisions has been swelling and throbbing and looking like a huge welt at times.  It usually happens at night and as soon as I lie down and take it easy, it goes back down.  So, I’ve been taking that as an indication that I may be overdoing it just a bit.  The wounds are starting to heal, so they’ve been itching quite a bit.  I’m finally able to keep the band-aids off of them which has been a relief because they were irritating my skin around the incisions which was creating some discomfort.

 

 

Overall, I can’t complain.  I used to feel pain in my right side on a regular basis.  In fact, I got so used to it that I just learned to live with it.  I never realized how much a part of my life that pain was.  One thing I noticed immediately after the surgery was that pain was completely gone.  That alone has been worth every second of every bit of pain I’ve felt during my recovery.  I’m feeling very positive about what’s to come.  I’m looking forward to putting this all behind me and getting back to my life without having this hanging over my head.

 

I’ll find out exactly how I’m doing next week.  I have a two-week post surgery check up with my doctor on Tuesday.
