Back from the Doctor - 1 Week Post Op

February 26th, 2016

Went to dr. this a.m. and he was HAPPY with everything! No infection, minimal bruising and swelling, and will remove stitches next week!!! YAY!!! For all of you just starting out - DO WHAT THE DOCTOR SAYS!!! Ice, elevate, rest and limit yourself to 10 minutes every 2 hours! All of this for 7 days!!! (Well, actually I lasted 4 days!) I went out for the day and have enjoyed myself - thanks to my 25 year old baby boy! Added bonus - got some Girl Scout Cookies to munch on next week and supplies to make some more Fairy Gardens! YAY ME!!! Tomorrow will be my 2nd shower day! PRAY it goes well!!!

    Congratulations Crzykdsmom! I’m very glad the doctor found everything fine. Now, what is this limit of 10 minutes for every 2 hours? of shower time? LOL
    Hope you had a great shower!
    You accumulated 460 minutes of shower time! Jeez… that’s even longer than when my teenagers were living at home and using up all the hot water! LOL
    Have fun! and keep up the good results!…….. Manny

    LOL! Thanks Manny!
    I actually overdid yesterday! Left at 8:30 a.m. and didn’t get home for the night until 9:00 p.m.!! LONG day but had a good one!

    Didn’t get my shower yet - I saved that for my Saturday night fun!!

    My doctor’s instructions said for the first 7 days to only be up for 10 minutes every 2 hours. For 4 days I stuck with that! Obviously yesterday I didn’t! But today I have plenty of supplies to occupy my sitting time!

    For those of you new to this - HANG IN THERE!!! I am only a newbie too but so far so good!! Later peeps!
