follow up appt

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

Had my follow up appt with consultant today and yipee been told i'm all back to normal now (op was 13.4.15) and can do whatever i want and lift whatever i want (within reason) but if it hurts don't do it, he said he thinks i'm sensible enough to know what to do (obviously doesn't know me lol).

So onwards and upwards now and back to training from Monday.

      I think its going to be a case of if it feels a bit to heavy and pulls on my belly a little i will still lift it but if i really pulls and hurts then i won't.

      I would normally lift 20kg animal food sacks as we have chickens so won't be doing that for a while yet but will pack a few more things than 2 in my carrier bags when i go shopping.  The consultant said that after 2 months a cannot do any harm really as i will be all healed inside and just to be sensible. Also don't think i will be doing any sit ups or high impact aerobics for a while and will only be doing low impact and swimming type exercise.

      Everyone tells you different,it gets a bit confusing.My dr told me that i would be healed inside after 6 weeks and when i went back to work last week not to lift any mote than 2.5kg.If everyone heals at different rates how can they know if you are fully healed without doing like a scan afterwards.My holiday is now only a week away so i am keeping clear of my normal job until after i get back.I returned last week doing 12 hrs,this week is 19hrs.I saw my manager yesterday and he is very happy with my progess.He has given me another 4 weeks part time before i return to my normal hrs.Next week i am doing 20 hrs.I am then on holiday and return to 25,then 30,then 35 hrs week by week.My full time hrs start w/c July 27th which is quite hood as i have only got a 4day wee

      What happens at your appt? I had one at 3 weeks, the Dr just looked at my incision and obviously couldn't do much then. I have another appt 2 July which will be 10 weeks. What will happen? I called the nurse at 6 weeks and she released some of my restrictions, but was only over the phone. What kind of examination will I get when I see the Dr then?

    Really want to know when I can start heavy lifting again. Have to take 3 or 4 trips every day to the overpriced Tesco Express around the corner because I'm only allowed light bags. Want to be able to walk to the big Morrisons a mile away and just do a once a week shop.
