When life puts you in tough situations don't say "Why me?" just say "Try me." - the Rock
4 weeks post op and things are moving along. I just finished the antibiotic for the infection I had that caused swelling of the abdomen and digestion issues. Digestion has improved, swelling has gone down, but my stomach is far from being back to normal unfortunately. It's a challenge seeing my body like this while I am unable to exercise. But I know it is a result of surgery, so I will be back to normal before I know it.
Pain level is down to just uncomfortable. By the end of the day I tend to be most uncomfortable, I am sure from overdoing it.
I am walking 3-6 miles when I can. On days that I have more chores around the house I end up opting out of a walk.
There are days when I am dying to run. I am craving a release. There are days I am frustrated. But the only thing I can control is my attitude, so that is what I will do! Focus on getting well, moving forward, and planning for my future goals!
