Have I mentioned yet how itchy I am? In the hospital, it was probably a reaction to the morphine; I also had a fever most of the time I was there so I was hot and sweaty. My mom scratched my back when I asked and it was a great relief.
Now I have the itchies in my incisions and in the drain wounds. I know this means things are healing, but it is terribly frustrating not to be able to scratch! Mostly I’m itchy on my sides under my arms where the drains were. I’m also itchy around my hips toward the edges of the hip-hip incision. I can rub on top of the binder and that helps a bit. But mostly I’m just itchy and there’s nothing that can be done.
