6 days in and all is going pretty well. Still a bit of soreness in my perineum, but nothing Tylenol doesn’t handle. I’ve not taken any narcotic meds since I left the hospital so the constipation has resolved itself. I’ve stopped the stool softener to see if I need it. The mouth graft area has been almost painless from the beginning. I was most concerned about this and it was a non issue for me.
The big drag for me right now is setting or the lack of. My doctor recommended none for the first two weeks nothing. Either lay or stand. Slouching in a chair or car seat if needed but to be avoided.
Looking forward to getting the tubes out and being normal for once.
