Slow but steady recovery

Thursday, May 05, 2011

Today was say four of my surgery recovery. I am still pretty uncomfortable, but standing up a little straighter now. I am eating more, but still eating healthy and conservatively. I just hope I don't gain any weight since I'm not working out and am practically immobile. In reality, I probably shouldn't even been thinking about this, just focusing on my recovery at this point.

  I think the name - "tummy tuck" - tends to trivialise it - like they've just folded your tummy up and tucked it in! Its not tho - its major abdominal surgery. With major surgery you need to take the time you need to recover; it can't be hurried.

I have huge admiration for you for going through with it - anaesthetic terrifies me! The fear of post-op pain is nothing compared to the fear of post anaesthesia psychosis!

The benefits of this are going to filter into every aspect of your life and you will be so very pleased you've had it done. I suspect you'll start to consider your life in terms of before and after the op...

It might not be easy - its a lot to get used to and a lot to let go of... and I think there might be almost a "mourning" for the person you were before... because you might not have been comfortable but you were safe. Now you're in new territory - and its as terrifying as it is exciting! So be prepared for the roller coaster... remove jewellery, dentures and false limbs!

    I hope you have a non-painful speedy recovery. Enjoy this time. You'll hit the cardio in time, just relax for now :)
