Well I had my first post op on Tuesday, and the doc says all is great and I look great, but I did mention to him I was feeling really tired and not resting enough. i asked if it would be ok if I took a day off from the walking? He really balked at the idea and said no laying around oyu need to keep moving.
Here is the thing I went from doing nothing to moving around and walking which it has been a lon long time since I have done this amount of activity.
If I was a healthy perso who just stared to go to the gym I would work out a few days and then skip a day so my body could rejuvinate, but that is ot the case here and every day I am feeling more and more fatigued.
On top of that there is all this meication prescribing mishap that has seemed to been miscomunicated and it is jut to much to explain, but I am now out of my valium and have been for ....well I took the last one yesterday morning.
I am having huge amounts of stress over this issue and hope they get it worked out because I started to take valium 2 months before surgery about 1 5mg tablet a day every day even still that was barely enough to help. After surgery they prescribed me valium every 4 hours as needed and I was averaging about 2-4 5 mg tabs a day and now they are gone and everything is a mess. i am well aware that this is not a medication to abruptly stop and seziures among other consequences are weighing on my mong. Not to mention I am haveing now even more pain and spasms that are not controled. I am in the provess of weighting for the surgeons office to call me and if I do not hear from them 1/2 hour after their call center is open I am going to get right on the phone.
I also woke this morning feeling very very muscle achey and fatigued and I have a sore throat that might be from a cold or from sleeping with my mouth open becasue since suregy I use my wedge pillow to sleep...which I love, but I am a normal side sleeper.
Do you all think that I should slow down? I feel I am on my feet for to many hours a day and unable to get myself to STOP dinking around and rest religously at least
1/2-- to -- 1hour about 3 times daily.
I can not drive so I am not out and about. but I do have one college course I take 1 day a week for aabout 2 hours with a break in ther, but I have home work...mostly reading which seems that I can only read when I am sitting and that caouses me just as much pain as doing it while sitting with the text book on an easle.
Over-doing it is not something I want to do! I feel like my body could benefit from a day of now walking is this a NONO :S
. I want my fusion process to come out as good as it possibly can. Does the walking help to promote fusion? I know it is good for the strengthening of the muscles.
I live alone so I am the one who has to water my tiny yard which does not require me to drag a hose I han turn the water on sit and spry everythin from one place and that is sufecient. I have to cook my own meals which are somewhat easy. Salads and steamed vegi's whole weat noodle and bread and occassional chiken which is cooked so I have a leftover.
OK I have rambledenough and need to call the docs office to see when they start taking calls.
