LSH-2WKPOSTOP-realistic travel expectations

How long can I be a passenger in a vehicle?
Sitting through a funeral service?
Refreshment time later?
How long away total?
I would really like to attend this funeral. Should I attempt it?
Is it too soon?
I have a small amount of pinkish discharge at this point in my recovery.
I need some sound advice.
Thanks

I think a half hour drive sitting is a long time at two weeks. That's me though. I think sitting through a funeral might be doable but not much after that. I would also think that getting back home or somewhere to lay down within a few hours would be very safe. Just me though.

Thanks Relief Seeker,
As you can see I posted twice about this issue. I thought the first one didn't work. Thanks for the speedy reply. I will heed your wise counsel.

Hi Tortellini,

I also had a LSH.

If your body feels up to it...I would vote yes...and attempt to attend the funeral. I can just suggest taking a pillow in the car if it is a longer distance. And just choose an aisle seat if you possibly needed to stand to take a break at the back during the funeral. The middle of a pew would be harder. Also, just try not to stand too long at the refreshment after the funeral. Make sure you can find a seat when needed.

On the pinkish discharge...I had it for approx. (10) days post-op. Some LSH ladies can report it a shorter period of time...and some ladies longer than I had it. Up to (6) weeks can be normal from what I have read on Hyster Sisters.

Best wishes with your post-op recovery~

Mary

As far as being a passenger goes, I would say whatever your body is up for, a donut or pillow to help with the pressure may help, longest I have done so far is like 30 min.
I went to a funeral (and a wedding) Saturday and I found a special comfy chair in the back of the funeral and I was still ready to cry after 45 min.
Plenty of sit/stand rotations with a donut pillow.
The pinkish discharge is normal for the first 6 weeks according to my OB yesterday at my 2 week follow up.

My doctor told me to drive no more than 2 hours without taking a half hour break and walking around. One has to be careful after surgery to avoid blood clots in the legs. Take care of yourself!

I think one thing we're not prepared for either is that sitting can bring pain...the pressure/gravity in that area where the surgery was done internally can cause that feeling of a bowling ball and it can really hurt.
