Today is day 14 post-op and it was my first day back to work. I can't believe how tired I felt, not sleepy I just felt like I was dragging. I think its because I didn't have enough calories let alone any protein. the soup I took for lunch was a bit too chunky and I didn't have my strainer. I also wore some pants today to work that are all stretch and comfy but after wearing them for so long I started to feel as if though I was wearing a binder or something. It was really tight and uncomfortable for a ten hour work day. Now I know why they said loose clothing after surgery.
As each day goes by I notice improvement in how I feel. I still find it hard to bend over and pick something up off of the floor. My friend had a spur of the moment birthday party for her son and we left early because I was exhausted from leaning over trying to grab my 19 months old hand to keep her out of trouble. Is it normal to hurt when I bend? Bend sideways?
On a bright side, Ron stopped by this evening so we could see each other. We didn't spend much time together since I am so tired but I love the fact that he is willing to come over if even for just a hug & kiss. I told him I felt pretty lucky to have him in my life and he said he felt lucky also. I don't want to jinx us, but I am very happy with how we are
