Thank you to the HS staff :-)

I want to thank everyone for the kind post op letters and checkpoint info, ect. It is VERY appreciated :-)

I am doing MUCH better than I expected, and I actually feel proud to have made it through this process so far :-)

I feel lik I have "graduated" to the POST OP boards, lol.
I will still visit the pre op boards to try to be as supportive as others have been for me

Hugs to everyone :-)

Ya, you would think I would want nothing more than to sleep, sleep, sleep! However...I feel like I have way more energy than I should! LOL

As for insomnia, I have had problems with insomnia since I was 13, but I have never felt like I could run a marathon....I always just felt worn and depressed when I couldnt fall asleep.

I am excited to be so wide awake, but kinda worried too, lol. I don't want to over do it :-)

Hi Mrs Gnarly,

Yes I was like that straight after surgery more energy than I'd had in months and I couldn't sleep much so I just rested. I'm still having trouble with insomnia.

If you can't sleep at least have a lie down and rest to help your body heal. If all else fails us aussie ladies are often on at this time. It's almost 9 30pm here.

Take care.........Karen

Hi Mrs Gnarly,

Oh so your being hen pecked hey! When I had my surgery there was only hubby and I home as our children all work in other areas. So I guess life for me was rather blessed. I did feel well enough that I cooked simple meals and cleaned up. I ironed and folded washing also but I always did little bits at a time. I felt I helped hubby with this as it was summer here at the time and it's always busy on the farm then.

Hubby hired a lady to clean the house once a week so I wouldn't do things I shouldn't do like sweeping, wash floors etc. I must say I didn't realise how much I would hate being waited on and I was pleased to be able to have my routine back but I know my body needed the time to recover. even now I can still manage to strain things and I'm 6 months post op.

Take care..........Karen
