Day 5 Post-op
The day started well. My pain was MUUUCH better. I know I said I was going to shower on day 4 but I ended up not feeling up to it. Today I did though! I had the energy and minor pain level so I not only showered but enjoyed it until all the hot water ran out! It,.. was heavenly.
I felt so great that I ended up driving, shopping, doing a lot of walking etc. I wanted to make up for lost time because until this day I have not been getting around much and feel I am greatly behind in my walking.
Dun, dun, duuun. I must have over did it. I'm back to being bedridden with the same pain from days 3 and 4. Son of a,... dumb, dumb, dumb.
This is embarassing to confess but I'm hoping that those that go behind me learn from my mistake(s).
Something else to note. I haven't lost any weight in these 5 days. I weighed myself today and was very much surprised by that. I don't know if I am eating too few calories and my body is hold on to my poundage or if it is because I've basically been bed ridden during this time,... I'm just starting to look into that but I am VERY discouraged by this discovery.
