I'm about 2 1/2 months out from my MicroD and six weeks out from finding out I had an infectionat the surgical site. I am just so dang tired all the time. Most days I don't leave my bed unless I absolutely have too. I sleep anywhere from 10-18 a day, and when I'm not sleeping, I'm laying down watching tv. I have to get out of this rut, because summer is here, and my kids play ball, and we get super busy. If it wasn't for all the rain we got this past week, I would have been in trouble because I wouldn't have gotten the kids where they need to be.
And now on top of already being tired all the time, I'm starting to wean off my fentanyl patch, which is going awful even though it's only been two days! I ache all over, and can hardly lift my head I'm so tired. I know this will eventually pass, but hasn't it been long enough yet??
I go to my doctor tomorrow and am thinking about asking him to put in PT, just to get me out of my house and moving. I just wonder if he will allow that though because I still have a hole the size of a small bouncy ball in my back and I'm still on the antibiotics, and the wet to dry dressings.
I jsut want to get out of my bed!! (well kinda, it is really comfy here LOL)
