Post Surgery Update

19 Comments 1290 views

Well, it’s over and I came out alive! Sore, but alive. To be frank, I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck.

I’m ordered to wear a binder until Friday’s post op appointment so I haven’t even seen the results or stitches but I can tell I’m super swollen.

The one thing that makes me feel better is to take walks around the house. It helps with the stiffness. I hope to be able to take a walk outside tomorrow, but we’ll see.

On the eating front today I was feeling well enough this morning to experiment in the kitchen. Actually I think its a form of therapy for me. I had fun researching and trying my hand at some homemade crêpes. I like them so much I ate them for every meal!

As promised, my food journal today, I do plan on counting points for a bit as I felt like my diet was getting away from me with the vacation, houseguests and parties. Even though I’m recovering the fact that we are back to normalcy at home is great. I’m taking full advantage of my time at home to catch up on projects and I’m make strides on the new site!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Good to here you are well on your way to mending!

    It IS so comforting to feel life ease back in to what we consider our normal routine. It’s like that when school starts for the kiddoes in the fall. (Which I am already looking forward to! ;) LOL) It’s fun to have them home and have to the freedom of “goofing around” with them, but, it is so much easier to stick with the plan when there’s a routine.

    Take care Roni!

    Glad you’re doing well and feel good enough to get back to experimenting in the kitchen.

    I was just wandering through you blog and cam across you before/after tummy tuck pictures and it gives me hope. I’ve been totally contemplating getting something done and that just gave me more fodder for thought. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hope that your recovery is quick and as painless as possible!

    I just had surgery too. I had cartiledge taken out of my ears and put into my nose like a little bridge, so that my airways are held up. So, I’m recovering too. I hope now, I will have increased oxygen intake, so I will be able to exercise better!

    You take care of yourself, and you will be back to “normal” in no time!!!

    I’m so glad you made it through surgery and are starting to recover. Those crepes sound interesting. Kind of like a low-carb wrap, but perhaps cheaper, since we make them ourselves. … I’ll have to try it.
