Cin Posted April 30, 2021 Share Posted April 30, 2021 Well I ended up getting a lobotomy (upper right lobe) since they found cancer. I won't get the lymph node results for a week. I have to say the first two days in hospital were painful as hell. The drugs helped so much and I was riding on a pink cloud of dilaudid by day three. My lung was leaking air so they kept me for 5.5 days, which I was fine with since I was so comfortable and live alone. I came home yesterday and slept comfortably in my recliner last night. One of my two cats took a few naps on my stomach (away from my side) and I was able to finally shower today. My best friend of 35 years lives in my condo, and she took me to CVS for medical supplies and wrapped up my wound after the sbower. I realize I absolutely cannot do that myself and had to flash my right boob at her, face level. We're friends, lol, oh well. I need to call someone about future wound care, do I re-wrap it up every day or does it need air? The only instructions I remember was that I could take a shower today .... Stitches out May 5th. Grateful to be alive and hope I don't go back to taking everything for granted. excuse my typos, I'm on a small iPad and a bit woozy.
