Is paingry a real thing?

Nov 25, 2016 10:32 AM

So I think so. It's three days post op and I'm still not very flexible or able to move to fast. I had to wait til mom decided to come back home to get out the bed this morning. Then my uncle comes by and I get up and get set up in big room so we could all talk. But then they collect in the back of the house leaving me alone in a broken recliner. I'm out of my lyrica and don't know when I'll get more. So my emotions are all on my sleeve. I call for help to up and I make my way back to the other rooms and I plainly say I was waiting for y'all to come up front. Then I'm offers a folding chair to sit in. Really a folding chair.. so now I'm in my room listening to my family have a full in conversation about me and my surgery without me. I'm sure in another head space this would be no big issue but right now it's annoying.

Paingry is real. And they are not treating you as they should be right after major surgery. You are definitely allowed to be annoyed, but try not to let it consume you.

I am trying to look at the situation as a whole and not take to much to heart. I'm trying to out into account that I may also be be very hormonal right now. Not really sure as to what to expect now thst I've had a hysterectomy.

Probably a bit of everything going on right now. Try to rest up. You don't have to get up to visit with people if you don't want to.

Hang in there ... Cripes ... Figure out what you need ... Will the pharmacy deliver?

Well with the lyrica I'm on the manufacturer program for assistance. But there was a lag in communication which left me me two months short . Once I brought it up the correction process is about three weeks.i tried to do as much as I could before surgery but as of now I'm kind of at a lost.and honestly I feel so foggy I'm not confident in my ability to deal probably with business stuff right now. I'll have to wait til Monday and see if my dr has samples.

Crappy crappy crap ... Hang in there and fingers crossed your dr can help.

Wish I was closer ... It's a struggle after surgery and please someone fluff that girls pillows, straighten her blanket, put that cup of hot chocolate next to her and then asked her if she needs anything else;!!

Hope you sleep well!

Paingry is very real. I find that when I'm in pain I get angry over things I would never be angry about normally. Try not to let your family get to you. Maybe the best thing for you to do right now is to lay in bed as comfortable as you can get, and just relax. As you heal you will figure out what is paingry and what is really worth the anger.

Thanks foggurl, times like today I had to make my own plate for lunch. Mom does not multi task very well. Just yesterday I was told I need to hurry up heal cause she tired.. ha..she laughed but she so ment it. .. but it's all good. I'm still not doing more then I need to because I don't want to need her help any longer then I have to. .
Scaryann, yes I'm relaxing trust me I may be very irritable but I'm doing exactly what the Dr says.

I feel for you, hopefully to get the meds shortfall sorted out and make you family aware of how discourteous and disheartening it is for them to discuss you as if you were invisible.
Reading the title of your post makes me readily that paingry is something I'm not alone in feeling. I also love the word 😀.
Hope you feel better soon xx

Paingry is very real! When I'm in pain i turn into a totally different person...I had a hysto 9 years ago and have had several surgeries prior to that...post surgery is one of the most frustrating times for pain sufferers...and family with their heads in the clouds do not make it any easier...I almost went hoarse from all the yelling and crying I did after my surgery...its rough now but it will get better...prayers for you for a speedy recovery 🙂
