Going Home After Coccyx Removal Surgery

I finally get to go home today! There’s no place like¬† home, there’s no place like home.¬† I simply cant wait to get home. I found it very difficult to sleep in the hospital for a variety of reasons and it certainly didn’t help that I was woken up every 2 hours for medication.

The doctor changed my surgical dressings and I spent time walking around the surgical wing I was in. I was anticipating having to use a walker, but for now, a cane is working just fine.

The pain isn’t a bad as I envisioned, which tells me the doctor is doing a great job keeping my pain under control. Now, for the part I’ve really been dreading…. the ride home. Ouch!
