After nearly a week post transplant I still feel pretty good if you subtract all of the pain. Today was especially bad for pain. I think I got a little behind my pain meds overnight, but my bowels just aren’t quick to wake up right now, so now I’m back to NPO (nothing by mouth) which is funny since I always thought it was short for “now phuk off”. Realistically I should’ve known it was Latin “nil per os”, but they don’t want me to make things worse, so I guess I can get on board if my morning is less painful than today’s.
I’ve been up and moving around still, they’re just being pokey to get moving. I’m still doing well and better than the first time, so we’ll just have to see how the next few days go.
Here’s an interesting bit of info; if you lay on your left side, your bowels are more apt to loosen up and wake up…..
Now I’m going to try and get some rest.
