It’s the middle of the night here and I woke up with a really sore shoulder. At first I thought it was my normal shoulder ache – I have one that dislocates very easily. Then I recalled something about post op shoulder pain. A quick Google tells me that it’s apparently very common to get shoulder pain after surgery where they have used CO2 to inflate your abdomen.
I’ve no idea whether they used it or not. It wasn’t laparoscopic this time – they went in through the existing channel (haha, my BFF laughed her head off when I told her that). The upside is that I don’t have any more scars. I’ve had laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery twice for endometriosis so I have one scar on my belly button and two scars in my side around near my hips. They take longer to heal than a no cut surgery so I am happy about that.
My shoulder kills though! I have done some Amazon shopping and I’m going to read my latest Tess Gerritsen novel on the kindle. Very gory crime novel with two leading ladies… Love it! I had been holding off buying the last one but I bought it when I was in for my surgery on Saturday as I knew I’d have a load of waiting. I’m about halfway through but haven’t really been concentrating as I’ve just been taking it easy. Now is as good a time as any.
