Beyond the Ocean's Edge

Recovering

It's been five days now since my hernia surgery, and I'm feeling better everyday.  The constant soreness is gone for the most part, and if anything, it itches.  I'm at the point where I need to remind myself to take it easy and not overdue stuff.  Last of the bandages will come off tonight and that might help the itch.  Still a bit of redness, swelling and regular old black and blue effects in the local area, but alot of that is fading as well... not nearly what it was.

As mentioned right after the procedure, I wasn't planning to fill the prescription for pain meds, and I didn't.  Did take a couple of Tylenol a couple of evenings, but that was it.  Sunday took Coco for a walk around the block. and then this week have been taking him for  slightly shorter versions of our regular walks, may two thirds or three quarters of what we used to do.  Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, early, Eva took him... but they don't quite have the walk routine, the repoire down for it that he does with me.

Until next time,
Dave
