Okay ladies I am so frustrated...and confused! I had my two week post op visit today. The doctor basically just asked me how i'm doing, as he said it was much too soon to insert a speculum or do an exam. (Which I was perfectly agreeable to him not doing by the way!!). When he was about to leave the room my dh asked him what my activity level should be now and until my next visit at six weeks. The doctor said no lifting or squatting/bending, but other than that I should be able to start adding back in all my normal usual activities now..."just listen to your body."
Im frustrated for a couple of reasons. One...everything I have read says that women should be mostly off their feet for several weeks, but hes saying jump back into your life now. And secondly, having said that to my dh, I feel like the expectation will now be that I do just that and if I continue to keep my feet up and take it easy Im afraid I will be perceived as lazy or as if I'm just milking it the situation for all its worth. I am two weeks post op, 49 years old. Should I in reality be ready to start adding in all my usual activities?
