Day 17 After Surgery
Thursday, April 04, 2013
I went to the Doctor on Tuesday. He said I was coming along nicely. My legs are still swollen up. I finally got over to Walgreens and got a pair of Teds. Hopefully that will help. The doctor did say this is normal and if I wanted to get some Teds I could but he didn't think it was necessary. I have been walking gradually since Saturday. I started out going around one block then Sunday 3 blocks Monday 1.17 miles Tuesday a day of rest Wednesday and Thursday 2.37 miles. I have to admit I hurt on Wed. when I got home. So today I made sure I took two Tylenol about 45 min. before leaving the house. It did the trick. So with my new mindset I am giving 100% to my program under the circumstances. I can not compare myself to my old self before my surgery on March 18th. Sooooo, I can only get better day by day. I know this may not make sense to anyone else reading this but I feel soo much better. If I hadn't read ON_2 Victory's (sp) blog recently I may have let guilt eat at me and then where would I have been. Not in a very good place. Woo Hoo to me! One step at a time.
