Am I Crazy? Four-days Post-Op and Already Went Shopping!

What drugs are you on? I don't see how anyone could go shopping and not pay dearly for it later.

Am I Crazy? Four-days Post-Op and Already Went Shopping!

Well, I don't necessarily think you're crazy, but I think you were lucky. I would have never gone near a Costco in my first couple of weeks post op, and it has nothing to do with overdoing it. I understand that, in theory, it's possible to ride on the motorized carts and get someone else to reach for things. However, a couple of things to consider:

* during the first week or so, even sitting is considered an activity because of the force of gravity on your healing tissues

* what if some unsupervised child had crashed a cart into you? even if they didn't hit your belly, just the tensing up of muscles that would have instinctively occurred would have been enough to cause significant pain, if not damage to healing tissues.

I did get out and walk a lot during my first couple of weeks - even with a Foley catheter in place. However, I didn't go anywhere crowded or where there were lots of kids. I don't think it's wise - but that's me.

s,
-Linda
