The road to recovery

I feel like this is going to take forever for me too heal. I know that once I'm healed I should finally be fine. It's just been so many years of pain and problems that I can't believe I'm almost at the end of this long road. No one ever said it would be easy, I'm just glad that I am rounding that final corner. Still in a lot of pain, and tired of poping pills that just make me sick instead of feel better. The only thing that seems to work right now are hot baths and sleep. I just keep telling myself that this will all be better soon enoung. Over and over again, and thankfully I have a great family thats helping me through it all and thanks to all of you for listning to me get this off my chest. well good night and i wish you all a short road to recovery.

The road to recovery

Hello sister, I used to live in Ann Arbor myself on Miller Street. i had my surgery on Oct 1, and still am recovering. Keep reading the sister's news and you will see we all have a alot in common. You are doing good remember it has only been since the 12th. Be good to your self. Stay ahead of the pain the body can not heal if it is pain,and from what i understand we have put our bodies through alot.
Untill later, Fela

The road to recovery

I remember feeling that way at about the same stage in my recovery. I semed to hit a wall at about 2-3 weeks. I think it's because we start feeling better and are bored with inactivity and start doing more. Just lsiten to your body and don't try to rush it. We have only one chance to heal properly the first time My dr said that complete healing can take up to a year or so.

I hope that you managed to get some rest last night, that always helped me

The road to recovery


Yesterday was the first day since my surgery that I felt really good! I woke up feeling fine and it continued all day. No discomfort, no tiredness (until I fell asleep on the couch at 9PM); I felt normal at last.

I'm at 3.5 weeks post-op.

Today I feel a little pit of stomach discomfort but nothing like it has been. I think this may be the healing that I've been hoping for. Now if I could just sleep more than 2 hours at a time at night...

Hang in there. It does get better.

Thanks for that, I'm so trying to hang in there. I sure do understand the lack of sleep issue, the pillows crunched between my legs, then flung in the the floor, tossing and turning. Thanks for the words of encouragement, glad to hear it does get better. Take care!

The road to recovery

I will be 5 weeks post op does get better. You will get thru the bored silly period and the i hate my life period too. I was sleeping every morning until 9 then going back to bed at 10 and sleeping til noon. Now I am getting up 8:30ish and staying up all day. I don't know why I'm not exhausted and sound asleep now, but who am I to question my body at this point? LOL
I am glad you all are feeling better.
Hang in there and keep on smiling!
Hugs - M
