This recovery has been so much harder than I had anticipated. I am 3.5 weeks post-op and doing better. The first 2 weeks were brutal...in fact, the most pain i have ever felt.
I am still having to cath regularly (not every time but still daily.) I’m starting to get nervous about the long term with that...
I am taking miralax every evening and cola every ever morning to keep things moving through easily. I had a little trouble with coffee (decaf and half caf) so I’m steering clear for now. Taking ibuprofen several times a day and warm epsom salt baths. My surgeon says to walk as much as possible, and not to stop until I’m about to drop. I’ve read on other people’s posts that they are resting. Wonder who’s right?
I am trying not to wallow in sadness about not being able to lift my youngest child (8months.) it’s very hard. Anyone else in the same boat?
