Pain & Relief
On Friday my backside was SO sore. Holy Cow!!! After five hours seated in the car, two fingers and then a scope? Yeah, I believe I was a little sore. I took some pain killers - four times - all within the prescription guidelines. Oh, how sweet when that pain finally went away.
Today I feel...well, okay. Still sore. I am staying on my back as much as I possibly can including during meals. Tomorrow the recliner will arrive. Thursday's arrival day was pushed back to Sunday. Hopefully this chair will provide the comfort I am looking for. I am so excited about the possibility of being reasonably comfortable. At this point, reasonably works for me.
I am pleased to tell you that the fissure is about healed. Sitz baths, soap, water and calendula ointment seem to do me alright. Yeah, boy!!! Gotta love when the pain goes away.
