Itching like you wouldn’t believe. It is driving me crazy. I think I’m backed up with about 10cc output today on each side. The left side appears to be swollen. I called the surgeon and he said to loosen the vest and not move my arms much and to call if it gets worse. It’s like my whole side is bruised and painful to the touch. Not sure how I will survive the week. Took some benedryl and colace. Some farts coming out but no bowel movement yet. Eating is normal. Still sleeping a lot and pretty tired. Put some bactarician(sp) on my drain holes. They look swollen too.
