Hi guys. I'm kinda miserable here. I'm still not able to go to work today because of post-op pain, which is my fifth day off if you count the surgery day last Fri. I'm not really able to sit up at my desktop computer and my laptop is at work, so I'm kinda hunched down in my desk chair with my feet on the desk as I type this. I've been stuck on the couch, rereading Hunger Games (8 days until I see the movie!) and watching the entire series of My So-Called Life. I'm on a YA kick these days, apparently.
The pain has been bad. I've been to my fertility clinic three times since my surgery Fri, and they're doing their best with me. The most popular explanation for my horrible recovery is that the balloon really aggravated my uterus, causing inflammation in there. Even though the balloon was removed on Monday, the ute still hasn't forgiven me. I'm buying the balloon theory since a similar surgery in December, minus the balloon, gave me very little pain and a speedy recovery. They're threatening to do a CT scan if I don't improve soon, and I'm willing the ute to heal before we have to do that.
I'm gearing myself up for my daily call to the doctor wherein I tell them that yep, still in horrible pain. Still taking narcotics but not constipated. No fever. Etc. They'll try to reassure me by telling me things looked great yesterday, felt ok on the internal exam, and it will probably just take another day or so. But I'll hear the concern in their voices. And with the weekend is coming, I wonder if we need to take some further action by tomorrow.
Being a couch potato isn't my natural state and I need some entertainment suggestions. What are your favorite shows? Bonus points if they're available instantly on Netflix. I am open to anything, barring scary. A Halloween episode of My So-Called Life that was pretty much the limit of what I could handle. Other shows in my Netflix queue are Downton Abbey, Chuck, Arrested Development, Portlandia, Nurse Jackie, and United States of Tara.
