BeansMama wrote:Well I am home! Took some juggling but I am in my house with my own things and so much more comfortable. I do have home health coming to run my fluids etc. Drains and dressing will be changed at the surgeons office as they were before.

Still have a ton of edema and am patiently waiting for the fluid shift. Waiting for my fluids to finish so I can clean up and feel much better.

Hope everyone else is doing well. I'm hanging in there. One day at a time.
