Here’s what I posted on Facebook:
Hey family and friends, here’s an update on Momma!
She was not supposed to see Dr. Gibbons until Friday, but her pain has still been significant and he did not expect that. I called his office yesterday afternoon and after speaking with him, he said to bring her back in this morning.
He thinks it looks good, she is having some breakdown in the same area where the cancer was originally and of course, the radiation treatments will make that area heal slower as well. He believes it will just take a little more time for her to feel better.
Momma and I were concerned infection may be setting in, but no, he didn’t think that was happening either.
We will go back Friday if she thinks she needs to see him again and if not, then next Thursday he will probably take out stitches. Some she has will absorb, some will have to be removed.
He says to try to take Aleve or Ibuprofen every four hours and if she needs more hydrocodone, he will fill her prescription again. She still has some and is going to “save” them for night time.
Nothing is ever easy for her and I hate that, but she is strong and she will get through this too!
