Stage 1 Patient
Diane, of course everyone is different, & I don't want to scare you, but yes, it hurts. At the time of placement, I had 150 cc's added to my expanders so that may have had something to do with it as well. My husband had to lift me for 2 days. Something easily as opening the fridge, I couldn't do. Heck, I couldn't open the bathroom door at the hospital, LOL! After the drains come out, you'll feel much better. They really are the worst part. You'll be ok, I promise. Prayers to you.
