    Issue on the massage is you shouldn't lay on your stomach it'll hurt. Same with whale watching. Pitch of the boat can tear stuff loose and being on a boat you'll be 30min-1hr from emergency care and it won't be U.S. level of care. Even if nothing tears it'll hurt like hell. Speed humps were tough for me the first month as were kids sitting in my lap leaning against my stomach. TBH whale watching at home in Kona is better than Mexico anyway.

    Actually I don't think it would be possible to lay flat on your stomach. I liked my recliner because I wasn't in a flat position. It would be like stretching everything out - ouch!

    You are so cute Kona Girl! I would totally be about the massages and facial too! But yeah to be honest I don't think you will feel like it. I took about 6 weeks to recover after my surgery and I was really fit and running half marathons before it! I think we don't really know what it will be like until we have it though. I am just pleased you were so excited about the massage and facials lol. Maybe you will manage just a facial because you will be laying on your back... I think I would have managed that :-)
    Lots of luck for your surgery. Exciting :-)

    I am purchasing compression socks this weekend and will take all of the advice to heart and continue to read all i can on recovery. Not gonna lie....I am sooooooo hoping that I will feel good enough for just a facial!!!!!! Well, maybe a shoulder massage too.....Don't worry, my husband will be my voice of reason if I get a little too confident! Thanks y'all! I'll check back in after surgery and let ya know if I can claim victory or defeat!!

    As to the shoulder massage: ask your surgeon to "deflate" you after she/he is done with the surgery.
    it is very simple for them to let all the CO2 gas out and it will safe you a lot of discomfort.
    Maybe even enough to get that shoulder massage!
    English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    I would think if you feel good and don't have to lie on your stomach you will be fine. Just listen to your body. All I wanted to do was sleep.
