All done

Friday, February 28, 2014

Well, it's been just over 2 weeks since my left kidney got a new home. I spent an extra day in the hospital, due to some low BP problems, but I am slowly healing now.

I've been walking 15 minutes a day, spread out over 3 walks. I am sore and my skin is sensitive in weird places. It's been harder to adjust to moving slower and modifying everything I do than I thought it would be.

I had to get one of those reacher/grabber things, as I'm not allowed to bed over or reach above my head for 6 weeks (threat of hernia). Everything takes longer, and it just makes me crazy. Oh well, I am better than I was a week ago, and have barely used the oxycodone prescribed (they make me feel awful; how do people get addicted to that stuff?!)

The last time I weighed myself, I was down a pound or so, since I didn't really eat much of anything for about a week after the surgery. Now, I'm back to a healthier, more nutritious diet, but had a bit of a binge yesterday. I won't weigh in until Sunday, so we'll see where I am at.

I'm off work until the end of March at least, so we'll see if I can get all the way back, as far as exercise is concerned, in that time frame.

If anyone wants specifics about my surgery and/or recovery, shoot me an email. Have a great weekend!

    Congratulations and welcome home! The 4th week seemed to be the turning point for me when I began feeling normal again.
