So ~ last night I got to sleep in my own house ~ albeit on the Futon and not my bed ~ still slept like a baby all night long! It feels great being home and almost a week post-op. John washed my super dirty hair last night ~ feel so much more human! Still can't take a real shower until Feb 13th. Getting my stitches out on Feb 11th.
The drive home was pretty uneventful and relatively quick. I was pretty drugged up with pain killers and muscle relaxants which made the ride bearable. I don't really know what to do with myself now. I don't do the whole rest and relaxation thing very well. I am exhausted tonight ~ missed my afternoon nap ~ hoping for an early bedtime.
I don't want to get my hopes up too much, but seriously, I haven't had any headaches since surgery ~ my neck and shoulders don't feel as tense ~ my neck looks longer ~ could I be cured just by one surgery??? I will give it a couple of weeks and hope to get off the pain meds before completely weighing in on how different I feel.
