Fibroadenoma  Day 2 Recovery

November 21, 2015, Saturday  

24hours after my Surgery:  I was able to take it easy while I recover during the first 24 hours. One of the first things I realized that I should not bend down at all or I else I knew I was going to be in excruciating pain.

Throughout the day, I ate a lot of plant protein foods, that included lentils, beans, and garbanzos. I tried not to take hydrocodone during the day because I did not like the side effects of the medications. I did not want to spend sleeping all day.  Throughout the day, I noticed that the incision began to sting a bit and itch. I was doing quick google research, and I read that if it starts to itch a bit, its a good sign that the incision is healing up.

I do not want to rely on medication during the daytime. So whenever I had pain during the day,  I got myself an ice pack and put it on my breast. It did control the pain for a bit. However, I did take the medication during the night because I wanted to sleep well and also place an ice pack while I slept. I was able to take a shower after 24 hours coming out of surgery. However, I had to make sure that the bandage did not get wet from the water. To prevent the bandage from getting wet, I placed a plastic bag and a regular towel on my right side.

Pretty much I took all day relaxing watching movies, working on homework, eating warm homecooked meals and spending time with my family and texting my boyfriend.

  1. sounds like all is going ok, so far. dont wait too long to take the pain meds or they wont be as helpful. keep up on the fluids. you could use vit e oil on the incision line or some aloe vera as both may help with healing and minimize scaring. the vit c is good ldea. dont rush. fyi, i am an RN 🙂
