The visit with the surgeon went well today. The incisions are healing well and my range of movement is good. She assured me that the swelling is part of the healing process and has to work its way out. Which means no running for quite awhile, but walking is good--in moderation. The healing process has revved up my metabolism which is an odd feeling for someone with a low functioning thyroid. It does explain why I am always hungry--and am not gaining wait with all of this sitting around. It also helps to explain why every day there is a point where I am totally out of energy. So I have permission to take a nap every day--at least for awhile.
The most surprising info was that the good days will always be followed by bad days--mostly because I will try to do too much. So, she cautioned me to be careful to work my way into the wedding carefully. I have to be careful not to do too much so that the wedding day is a good day. And to expect that the day after the wedding will be a bad one-that's a little bittersweet isn't it?
