I have some interesting observations on this go round.
Today is my second full day back to work (and understand I do a 9/10 hr day) which is mostly constrained to teleconferences (one right after the other) quite boring but I have global responsibilities and I sit on my a$$ all day long on the phone. .ITs what I do, and what they pay me for..
BUT.. having stated such, it was far different from the prior days of recouperating from my PS.
I was able to walk around, stretch, go up and down steps (in short) be mobile.
Not the same at work.. when I got home last night I WAS EXHAUSTED!!! exhausted by sitting on my keester all day long (go figure).
I am still sore, and this has taken me back a bit because I would think by the 1 week mark, I would be dancing the jig (my TT didnt affected me this way).
I hate to take off my compression garment, its like a security blanket.
It hurts to lay in bed, and I refuse to take any pain meds.. I am taking tylenol though and that seems to help a bit.
I still have a bit of facial brusing, and it takes quite a bit of pancake makeup to cover up.. it show through slightly but when the stuff comes off.. YIKES.. I jump back.
Healing is always the worst part, but I really thought this would be a cake walk, and as I have been reminded, I CHOSE to do this. Translation... stop whining. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. and if that wasn't enough here is some more WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
The other interesting phenom is that my band continues to be tight, I mean to the point that I am solely on liquids. I am thinking I may need to do the band post op thing and start off with mushies. I thought I could eat chili last night and that was a no go. I did have a healthy choice fudge pop and that went down fine. So I am doing the WL shakes for now, they fill you for a short period, but really don't satisfy and give you a feeling of contentment.
It's interesting to me that at 3 years out, I would still be in the position of trying to figure out how my band will respond to certain conditions. Perhaps a life long learning curve!
One last thought.. thank you for all of your comments and support. I miss you guys. I hope there is another BOOB rally, I would really like to see you all again!!!
