Today is 2 weeks since I had my hysterectomy. Everything went well. I checked in Monday at 6am and was released Tuesday about 1pm. Was on pain meds for 4 days before felt good enough to go without. I felt GREAT that first week. So good that I overestimated my recovery and did a bit too much!! My doctor made me realize that no pain did not necessarily mean I was back to 100%. So last week I went back to taking it easy and think I am on the right track for healing.
Today, I drove my son to his chiropractor. He was going to be in there a while so I decided to hang out in Target. I just browsed and walked up and down the aisles at my own pace. It felt good to walk. While it wasn't anything that worked up a sweat...it still felt good.
I can't believe I am saying this...but I miss exercising!! I can't wait for my 6 week checkup, to be cleared to get back to working out. For now; I am starting short walks...at a slow pace.
It is hard to be stuck at home and seeing everything that needs to be cleaned yet not being able to really do much about it. I can basic stuff but no vacuuming or scrubbing. David has been awesome with keeping up laundry and dishes but I still see stuff that I want to do. I think I need a maid........
So for now, taking it easy and trying not to go stir crazy!!!
