Had a much better night now that I have figured out how to regulate the meds. I took the Hydrocodone about 9:30pm so I was pain free by the time I laid down about 11pm. It is still difficult to lay my head on the pillow to find a comfortable position. It takes a little maneuvering but I'm able to manage.
During the day I worked on the computer. I teach for 3 universities online so I was reading and grading assignments from students all day. I'm still trying to take it easy each day during this initial healing process. I am retired but I think I can say with confidence that I could have been back to work had I needed to. As long as the pain meds are available, I think anyone could be working through this. I would suggest wearing the surgical cap because your head still looks a bit unpleasant, especially in the donor area.
