I saw my surgeon today and he is pleased with my recovery. He still doesn't want me to work for another month. He wants me to see an Oncologist. When I got home, my phone was ringing and it was my surgeons secretary telling me I have an appointment with an Oncologist tomorrow. (they sure don't waste any time). The haematoma under my arm from the surgery has gone down some but I still have to sleep with the heating pad for a while.
The best news is that I can start gradually increasing my activity at the gym. It will take me 2-3 weeks to get back where I was but I am in no hurry.
Like my surgeon says, "Getting to the gym is half the battle".
I will be glad when I can sleep back in bed again as I've been sleeping on a recliner since I got home.
Took the dog for a walk up the street today as the woods are still to deep with snow for her. I don't know when I have slept so much. I am up at 4 AM, 2 naps during the day ans I'm in bed by 6:30PM for the night. Doctor said don't worry about it as my body needs time to heal and that is one way of doing it.
