4-13-12/The Day After

Kidney surgery was better, and worse, than I thought it would be. First, the bad news. Narcotics suck, as do incinsions and pain. However, everything went really well considering. The kidney started working immediately – there can up to a several day delay. My creatnine had dropped from 5 to about 3 by this morning, and I am already feeling better. Yes, I have surgery related pain, but I am also not feeling ill for the first time in a long time. My stomach is okay as is my head. Additionally, I had no ill effects from the steroids -no mood or blood sugar issues – so far.


My mother is doing fine, except that they had to re-catheterize her because she wasn’t producing urine. Apparently, that is pretty normal and not a concern, but I feel bad.


My mother said overall it was not as bad as she thought it would be and had no regrets. Especially since she sees how much better I feel even one day out. She’s a fantastic mother and I am lucky to have her.
