Well as from this morning, it is starting to get alot easier to get up from the couch, out of bed, in and out of the car and so forth. I still wont try to pick up my daughter or do anything strenuous that could cause pain of strain on my incisions though. I dont feel quite as tight across my lower cleavage area anymore either. So I am starting to feel human again. Thank god!!!!!!!
I just had a call from Dr Jenny Coatts from Dr Bowdens office, just to check up and see how I'm going, which I thought was quite nice. I told her all was good, she asked if I have any questions, and as usual, couldnt think of any on the spot. LOL... give me an hour or two and I will think of a whole list of questions.
I am anxious to know how much more weight I have lost since the operation. Having lost 8kg in the first 2 weeks on optifast prior to the op, it may have slowed down. But any loss is a good loss.
I still havent made a bowel movement since my op, so I may go and see the chemist and see what they can offer me.
This morning, I think I tried on every single top in my wardrobe, and was trying to find one that fits nicely to the weight that I have lost so far. It seems it wont be long before I have to invest in just a top or two. LOL.. it can be my reward for losing the first 10kg. Its not like I can reward myself with a nice lunch out or something ridiculously fattening.
Once I am feeling a little more energetic, I am going to get into the back garden and give it a make over. I've never been into gardening, but as it is a time for new beginnings, its time to change hobbies that are usually ones that involve sitting on my backside, to more active ones. Even as I sit here and look out at the soccer field accross the street, I am anxious to get over there and walk a few laps of it. Buuut, I think it will have to wait about another week. I cant overdo things yet.
I also noticed when I got up this morning, that I no longer hobble with pain when I get out of bed of a morning. I used to try to mask it in front of hubby, coz I didnt want him to realise the severity of the pressure my weight was putting on my feet, knees and ankles. Its a great change.
Well I got a few DVDs to watch today, as I have just dropped Ayisha to daycare and Montel is at school. Finally peace and quiet.. Well that is untill mum and dad get here to finish off my ensuite.
