My surgeon and his nurses told me this wouldn't hurt once this device was implanted.
Now I will tell you MY truth. This HURTS.
Yes, this is just DAY 1, but I can't turn my neck to the left without pain, or to the right without irritation; it is painful on the right side of both my neck and throat to swallow; my right collar bone hurts expecially where the port was embedded; I cannot raise up without help from laying down; and, I cannot eat politely because I am right-handed.
There will be no sugar-coating from me. And since I am not so good with getting the feelings said out loud, you will find my truth, MY reality in my words here.
