This all sounds great man! I've read numerous times now that the pain amplifies around the 3-5 day mark. Apparently this is when some component of the anesthesia or whatever drugs they give you for the surgery fully wear off. So I'd expect pain in a few days more so than now, and just know it's normal. When I get my procedure, I'm going to try my best to hold off on the stronger pain meds until this rolls around, so my tolerance doesn't get too high before then. I honestly wouldn't. You just had surgery there, i'd give it a few days. Sitting a lot immediately can't possibly be too good for it, and I'm guessing it's a bit more difficult to tell what it actually feels like since you still have post-surgery drugs and painkillers in your system. I'd say wait until you feel like you have more feeling in the area, and then give it a few minutes of sit time. I read around these forums that it's good to stretch the scar tissue so it doesn't become too stiff and rip open when you do end up sitting. So i'd definitely sit some when you can, since that is basically stretching it some. But I'd certainly give it another day or two. Get that protein and nutrients and some rest tomorrow! I do have a few questions for you... What type of anesthesia did you go with, and how did you feel when you woke up? I am wondering if your head was pounding or anything of that sort. All other surgical procedures I've had that required anesthesia left me with a really crazy "buzzing" head ache. Although, this was things like wisdom teeth and deviated septum surgery, so the headache could very well be from surgery in the head area. I thought I was supposed to do a liquid diet too, but only because I read you mention it in your first post, haha. That's good to know, but it could very well be different for me. How's your appetite been? I figured I'd still have materials for a liquid diet around, in case I don't have a big enough appetite to get all the nutrients I need. This could all very well change over the next few days as you take various painkillers and antibiotics I imagine. Wishing you a speedy recovery and glad everything seems like it's going well so far!
