I cannot tell you how good I feel after having my surgery.
Better than I did before - I'm not uncomfortable and no longer have a constant low grade pain which would spike during "that time of the month".
So of course since I feel "better" I think I can go 90 miles an hour.
Take long brisk walks.
Move furniture (i.e. the couch when I drop something and it rolls so far under I can't reach).
Run errands all day, then unpack a bit...
Then I'm exhausted AND now I'm feeling sore again around my incisions.
As a friend reminded me today - I had major organs taken out, I'm healing from the inside out and I need to take it easy.
There is a reason the doctor makes you take six weeks off...
So I think I'm going to try to be intelligent about this and take it easy for the next two days.
Because I want to go to Lights in the Heights and I don't want to be too pooped to enjoy it.
