Bored how do you cope?

Posted , 6 users are following.

what does everyone do all day? I've managed to start managing my evening sleeping which leaves me now with not much else to worry about(oh and a scar that hasn't still quite healed yet!) I just don't know what to do with myself 😮 stop there's a song in there somewhere!

i manage to do bits of washing and ironing a bit of walking.... But what else is there to do😡😡😡😡😡???

    Hi Rsarahj

    You keep walking, in lovely places enjoy the view, or if no views available walk around the shops and enjoy.  Rest in between, read, watch a film, meditiate,  then do stairs, rest, more walking, hee! hee! I am sounding like a cheer leader!  

    Love

    Jacqui lol

    Do enjoy, real life will catch up with you very soon!

    I agree with Neverstaystill and Jacqui.Enjoy your time off,make the most of it.Sadly i am due back to work tomorrow if my Dr gives the all clear.To start off for the first few days I was watching tv,reading,doing puzzles and I have kept a daily journal since my op what I did and how I felt.Within 3 days from coming home I was out and about.Not far to start but the walking did me good.I was soon doing lots of household jobs except hoovering and ironing and I was going shopping but not carrying heavy bags,Some days there wasn't time to do the chores I had planned.For ages I had wanted to transfer photos from my computer onto dvd's and I only finished that the other day.It has been so nice going out with colleagues for coffee or lunch.It isn't every day that I get chance to sit in a pub for 3hrs.Unfortunately my Mum isn't well so my time off has given me chance to sort a few things out for her.I go away in just under 3 weeks and we have a garden party 2 days after we get back so I am planning for both.The more you are kept busy mentally and physically it will help with your recovery.

      Hi Teresa

      You have been busy!  I want to know where the 10 weeks have gone,  Can you believe we have made it through recovery.  I kept a journal too, great to see the progress.  My last page is ready for my 3 month check up on the 15th, when I shower my surgeon with hugs and kisses!  Hoping he will give me the 'all clear' to finally pick up Rosie.  As she is 8 kilos I have to wait for him to say okay and of course to the dreaded hoover!  I never read any of the books I intended, I got carried away walking in the woods and climbing stairs!  

      I love the 3 hours you spent in the pub, lovely rest place.  Hope your Mum is making a good recovery.  

      Good luck at work tomorrow, ease into it, don't do too much!

      Love

      It has actually only been 9 weeks on Tues since my op.The 3hr comment about the pub is only on 1 day.My Mum has lots of problems which will never improve and we I take her out I have to push her Ina wheelchair which I haven't done yet.I gave up driving years ago so life is difficult with her now.I only had a 6 week check up with my consultant and that was a waste of time.Did you see my post from Fri about my appointment that day?If I start work it will only be for 3 hrs from10.30-1.30 for 4 days and I can work less if I feel it is too much.My manager is being fantastic.

      Hi Teresa 

      So sorry to hear about your Mum. It must make life difficult for all of you.

      Glad you have not pushed the wheelchair yet.  Very hard work on the stomach muscles.   I did see your post.  So glad your work is being helpful to you.  Hee! hee! don't worry I didn't think you were in the pub all the time!  It just sounded lovely.  

      Take care

      Love

      Hi Elsbeth

      Just to wish you good luck for Wednesday.  Don't worry all will be fine.  I woke up in recovery to see my surgeon flapping his arms around saying 'Tell Me I am Wonderful!'  Hee! hee! he did a good job and wanted me to tell him so, I could not stop laughing and then I thought 'Well I must be okay because I am laughing!'  cheesygrin

      Let us know how you get on as soon as you can.  Will be thinking of you and recovery is not as bad as you think.  Looking forward to you joining us 'on the other side'.lol

      Try and get lots of rest and sleep before the op, it helps the healing.

      Love
