Just wanted to give a quick update on my recovery.
Things continue to go better than expected, with the exception of one incision that is having some healing issues. I am managing it, and it isn’t infected or an issue I haven’t encountered before.
To be truthful, I have reached the point where I am almost bored, and feeling restless and struggling a little to keep myself from doing much. I have lots to keep me busy, but it is all sedentary work. I am still having pain, but it is much less than it was. I am able to walk upright again, although I also notice I have to remind myself to engage my core when standing. I try to spend a little time each day just standing and adjusting my posture.
Mostly I am focusing on school, and I have been crocheting up a storm, made one afghan already, and more than halfway through another. I have enough wool for one more after that.
I know there have been small adjustments in my reaction to the surgery as far as hormone reaction and I look forward to when they stabilize, although compared to where I was, there is a definite improvement.
I see the surgeon for follow-up next week, but it is really just a preliminary check of my incisions. I don’t expect any real follow-up until my 6-week check in August. I will be off work at least 6 weeks.
I miss dance terribly. I feel very restless and like I have no output for my energy. I am glad it is summer and not a busier time of year, but this surgery is likely to put all fall competitions off the table as most of them have entry deadlines before I will really know how my dance recovery will be.
I am trying not to think about it for now and focus on my recovery.
Bottom line, I am doing well 🙂
