An Update! Long overdue!

Saturday, April 26, 2014

So my log in streak is 168 days. Even though I had an overnight stay at the hospital, I was still able to log in everyday.

Workout streak was up to 101 days as of April 23rd. I'm glad I got a short walk in the the 23rd, as that was the day I had my thyroid removed. So I really thought I'd get right back on the horse the next day, or at least the 2nd day, but that did not happen. Right after the surgery I had some trouble urinating, and when I was finally successful Thursday night, they let me go home. Friday was ok, but peeing was not so easy, and by 8pm, I was no longer able to do it, so it was a late night trip to the ER and back at home this am @5 with a foley catheter and instructions to keep it in for 3 days. Also some meds. Hoping for some real relief Monday or Tuesday. I will try to re-start my workout streak tomorrow or Monday. Other than the problems with urination, my recovery is going well.

Thanks in advance for your support and prayers.

    I would also encourage rest for a week, post surgery. When I had my parathyroid surgery in the fall of 2009 the doctor gave me specific instructions but then after the stitches came out a week later, put no restrictions on my activity. I can't imaging thyroid surgery being that different from the parathyroid exploration, since the parathyroid glands sit atop the thyroid.


    My blog from that episode, when I got back on the treadmill again?

    Windy, you've been through the mill my friend. Rule of thumb is that you get fully recovered and THEN you consider exercise and diet. Don't, please, plan to start while having a catheter in you. That's not good for you.

    So, rest up, relax and heal 1st and foremost. Then exercise and diet.
