One day post surgery

I'm back. It's been a little over 24 hours post surgery and I am quite surprised how well I am doing. I have no need for pain meds at all. I filled the prescription just in case. The hospital room was nice and big and I had it all to myself. I even had a flat screen TV. Nice menu to order whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted as well. Although my mouth is only able to open the size of mailbox slot.
So my husband had to cut my fruit up into little pieces so I could shove it in there. My food plan is instant mashed potatoes/oatmeal/jello and protein shakes. He is home with me for the next week so he can make all of this for me during the day. Even though I feel decent I am certainly not going to overdo it in any capacity.

Right hand has some relief
Left hand some relief but less than right hand
Legs are not numb but that stopped a week ago. The main symptoms I had going into surgery was vertigo, headaches and hand numbness. I have trouble swallowing, talking and my throat is sore, as well as the incision. But not much more to report.
