Brandon, glad to hear you are doing so good! My son is 10 days post op and he's been sitting for a few days now kind of off to the side. Not really any discharge but i'll keep an eye out. Keep feeling better!
Did Zerfas give you that post op write up packet thing? It was a general looking thing that they give to all the "pilonidal people" lol, did she include a personalized instruction sheet?
How are you feeling today?
Good!! No I got a few things and one was handwritten, it said not to bend, squat, twist and something else, said I could do the stairs, it was just a run down of the nurses instructions, prescriptions, etc
Cool! Ya i still havent sat yet im just nervous lol.
Not to much has changed really. Some soreness and just been walking slower. Just keeping up my fruits and veggies and protein. My appointment is next Wednesday. A bit of drainage.
She told me I could sit immediately, and that I would feel uncomfortable or pain if I sat too long which is a sign to stand up. I asked and she said I couldn't pop a stitch by sitting and that I would feel it before that happened
Just don't push your body into something it's not ready for, feel it out and stop when it hurts or you are too uncomfortable
Today has been decent so far. Had the most drainage that ive had yet. I see like a pin hole that has opened in the middle, which in a sense i expected. I didnt have a drain so its my body's way of pushing it out. Still makes me nervous but it has to escape somewhere. The drainage looks fine as well. No odd smells or any thing.
Had more drainage when i woke up. Seems to drain the most at night when i sleep. i dont know its the way i sleep or im twisting and dont realize. My other theory was that my body and muscles are relaxed so thats the time that it escapes. Upgraded to a thicker pad. The drainage still looks ok. Im keeping an eye on it. I have my appointment tomorrow!
