5 days post-op

I'm feeling pretty miserable, I'm not going to lie. Dealing with all the physical and mental aspects at the same time is difficult to say the least. I have lots of discomfort in my digestive area and pain near my ribs where my gallbladder used to be and funnily (not really) on the other side too. I can't eat much or I feel overly full.
The D+E part of the surgery just left me with an empty feeling that I can't describe. The physical pain of it is minimal in comparison.
Adam has been SO great about taking care of everything around here with Ella and housework. Today was the first day he went back to work and it's been hard, Ella is such a good baby, but even good babies have rough times during the day and physically I just can't keep up with her right now, luckily, my mom is coming at 3 after she gets out of work and is taking Ella until Adam can pick her up after work.
I'm going to call the doctor today and ask him if the physical pain I'm feeling is normal because it sure doesn't feel like it. I've had laps before and the pain is not like this. It's a different body part, so maybe that's it.
Tomorrow is a new day....
