Haven't Posted Much Lately......Daughter Recovering From Surgery - Bummer Knees - 03-21-2008

It is spring break for us and it has a busy week for my family.

My 17 yr old daughter had surgery earlier this week. She had what
we thought was a birth mark (turns out it wasn't) removed.

This (object) that was removed started growing a couple of months ago and became painful, the doctor said it was "deep" but looked benign, still a biopsy will be done.

School starts Monday and judging from my daughter's recovery I doublt if she will be going all day for the first week.

Been "nurse mom" this week.

Hi Bummer... you do have your hands full ... give your daughter my best. You are a great mom whether it is a NURSE mom or a FUN mom, or any other role that you must play as the mother of children. I trust that you also taking care of YOU. If you do not take care of you, you cannot take of others... so take care of you, becasue you are so good at taking care of others...love you Red

Thanks Still, Sweets, & Red.

I do believe my daughter is feeling better today as she is getting mouthy. She is good about saying what she thinks. We removed the outer dressing today and she had her first shower since surgery.

I have been having some problems this week and I believe it is more than the stress of her surgery.

The nerve pain has gotten quite a bit worse this week. I've been to the store twice this week and the pain was at an 8 before I left the store, spent no more time in the store then I had to. Not doing anything out of the ordinary so I don't know the cause for the increase in pain.

Bummer,
I hope your daughter has an uncomplicated and quick recovery. You need to take it easy while caring for her as well. I hope you both feel better soon.
Love
Vickie

BK....Don't forget nursing yourself too!
I hope your pain level has let up...if not? Get yer behind to MD!

I pray your daughter is well and healed quickly...if she's getting mouthy, she's most likely feeling better!
take care, LillySmile

Hope and pray all is well with all of you....I know it's hard to try and take it easy, when you have so much going on....try and rest in between as much as possible....

Thank you everyone.

My daughter is still in a lot of pain. She can't do much of anything other then shower and wash her hair, then it wipes her out.

She is a junior in high school and starts back to school Monday, I do not see how she will make it all day.
She is still on Loratab and tomorrow will try tylenol extra strength.

And for me......at this time I am not receiving any medical care for my back or knees. The nerve pain & weakness does continue to get worse and drives me crazy. I had to do a Wal Mart run today and my hubby went with me, he got the groceries at the back of the store and I got the groceries at the front of the store. Couldn't do the walking to shop by myself.

When I had the discogram it showed marked grade 4 disc disruption with leaky disc. I was told last Sept. the nerve pain & weakness would improve with time and that hasn't happened.

I worry about having to cope with the nerve pain and knee replacement at the same time.
