Hahaha...I could definitely share about TONS of things I'm in love with right now...like wearing leggings again without "granny panties" because my body has healed enough to not need them anymore. :) I could also share that I LOVED my White Chocolate Peppermint Coconut Milk Steamer from Starbucks over the weekend OR spending time with my step-daughters over the weekend. It was a great time filled with shopping, treating, and basketball. What could be better, right?
Well, I'm 3 weeks into my recovery from my hysterectomy on Oct. 17th and I'm feeling GREAT!
This has been a good week for me. I truly feel "back to normal" when it comes to soreness and fatigue. My scars are healing well and the swelling and minimal bruising that I did have is just about gone.
I have lost some of my muscle tone in my midsection due to inactivity and the fact that I had a "major surgery" in that area only 2 weeks ago today. Overall, I'm WAY more excited about getting back to my normal routine in a few weeks than I thought I would be.
I had no idea "how much" this surgery would effect my body. I wasn't sure how much pain I'd be in. What kind of swelling would happen to me? I knew we are all different.
Externally, I've healed super quickly. On the flip side, internally isn't healing as fast as my doc would like.
