Monday – 60 minute bush walk, 60 minute restorative yoga class
Tuesday – 60 minute bush walk
Wednesday – Gallbladder surgery
Thursday – Released from hospital about mid-day and traveled the 3 1/2 hours home. Not feeling too poorly. Groggy and some discomfort but no extreme pain.
Friday – Recovery mode. Moving slowly but relatively pain free except when getting up and down from chairs or in and out of bed. Surprised to read discharge papers that I’m not to drive for 4-6 weeks. Will chat with MD about that when I see him on Monday. If I continue to feel this good, I’m guessing I’ll be out walking next week.
Saturday – Have gone the last 12 hours without any pain meds – not even Panadol. Sore and stiff but no intense pain. While on the pain meds, my hip pain also went away. It will be interesting to see if it returns once the pain meds clear my system. I’ll continue to take it easy today and tomorrow but if I continue to improve and feel this good, I think I’ll be on the road walking come Monday or Tuesday. Even though I know the doctor won’t want me lifting/swinging for several weeks, hopefully he’ll give me the go-ahead for yoga when I see him on Monday.
Sunday – I am tired. I am weary. A trip to the grocery store wore me out. Discomfort but not pain. Stomach is a bit upset. Middle back is achey. Took 2 Panadol before bed last night and slept 6 hours. Plan to spend time on the couch in front of the fire napping today. Feel a bit like a baby but I guess it’s only been 3 days since surgery so I should cut myself some slack.
