Imagine waking up every morning shaking like a tree in the summer breeze or having this painful headache that makes you just want to keep your eyes closed. Even having this pain that radiates from your lower back down your hip into the bottom of your feet. Sounds interesting enough right? Well, that is my reality.
Sunday, December 9,2018 marked me as one-month post-op from my second laparoscopy. This month has been rough, to say the least. I have been sick with a virus that turned into bronchitis and then a bad sinus infection the entire time. How has it been those three different things? Your guess is as good as mine. Some mornings I wake up feeling like I did waking up from surgery. I don’t remember my first recovery too well but I don’t think it was anything like this. I have done my best to keep a positive mindset. I have been blessed enough to wake up every day for the past month, though it hurts I can walk, I still have the ability to speak and I can still raise awareness.
However every morning I have woken up for the past three weeks I’ve been shaking like a tree in the wind. I have also had this consistent hip pain. It feels as though my left hip is trying to detach from my body. Matter of fact it feels like it is trying to take my entire left side with it. I have had hip pain before that was diagnosed as bursitis but this is different. I have also had a low grade fever that just doesn’t want to let me be great.
Bending, sitting, laying, standing, walking, using the restroom irritates the top of my belly button on down. It has been like this the entire time. I have been drinking peppermint water to help with that. I got the AromaTouch Diffused Enrollment Kit 2018-2019 from Doterra. I have been posting about my experience with it on my instagram!
It was working for a while and then… yesterday happened. My deep cough returned even after drinking my peppermint water (Hot water with 2 drops of peppermint oil) in it 2 or 3 times a day. My endo belly was better and then I vomited yesterday. That was about the fifth time that has happened in a month. Usually, I am just nauseous but recently since surgery, it has come up.
They say a minimally invasive surgery is supposed to be easier on your body
I know for a fact that isn’t true! I had organs moved around and tissue cut that mess HURTS! Like I have been opened up and rearranged over and over. Hopefully in the months to come things will improve 💛.
