Quick update

I’m up to my eyeballs in work and school responsibilities right now, so I’ve not kept up with blogging in my usual narrative style. Sorry about that.

This is just a list – a run through of the past month. It will be TMI. I’m still experiencing some of the same things as happened before surgery.

Sunday, March 27, 2011: The usual pre-menstrual anal bleeds, which warn me that my period is on its way. It’s not always painful – it’s just alarming to see that much bright blood with a bowel movement. It happens every month right before my period.

Monday, March 28, 2011: Continued anal bleeds.

Tuesday, March 29, 2011: Moderate low back pain

Wednesday, March 30, 2011: Intermittent uterine cramps throughout the day.

Thursday, March 31, 2011: Very painful cramps which woke me at 3:30am. Took 1/2 T3. Cramps present again at 7am. Still bicycled to work because I’d missed my bus. Meanwhile, still dealing with bronchitis and had to use my inhaler when I got to work. Vaginal mucosa changed that afternoon to a pale pink.

Friday, April 1, 2011: George arrived. Still went to work for a full day. Hung out with friends at their house that night, eating tons of junky food.

Saturday, April 2, 2011: Day 2 of george. Took public transit to get my hair cut by a friend, then took transit home, then went and visited father-in-law in hospital rehabilitation.

Sunday, April 3, 2011: Day 3 of george. Bad pain day.

Monday, April 4, 2011: Worst pain day – called in sick to work. While sitting on the couch with heating pad, I turned to my side while in the midst of a violent coughing fit, and it felt like I broke a floater rib on my right side. The pain was excruciating.
Apparently this was the last of my coughing fits, and it really went out with a bang! I called the doctor, who said it’s likely a strain, not broken, cuz there’s no external bruising.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011: went back to work, still bleeding but the worst pain was over. Now dealing with the very painful rib strain. On 1,200 – 1,600mg Ibuprofen, taking Tylenol 3 at night to sleep through the rib pain.

Wednesday, April 6, 2011: Spotting. Still dealing with the very painful rib strain. On 1,200 – 1,600mg Ibuprofen, taking Tylenol 3 at night to sleep through the rib pain.

Thursday, April 7, 2011: Spotting. Still dealing with the very painful rib strain. On 1,200 – 1,600mg Ibuprofen, taking Tylenol 3 at night to sleep through the rib pain.
