Well ladies and gentleman….the time has come! This is my last week as a lonely shut in. I have PT on Wednesday and see Dr. Greaney on Friday to hopefully get cleared so I can get to go back to work the following Monday. I am still sleeping upright on the chase in the living room. They recommended that I sleep this way for at least 2 weeks, (Thursday will be 2 weeks post surgery) but I am still pretty sore when I get up in the morning. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Is this normal? When does this go away?
I am actually nervous to go back to work. Not because I forgot how to do my job, but my unit is very fast paced and we don’t have many chairs to sit, so I am afraid my back is going to be pretty sore. Goodness I sound like an old maid. Hah. I wonder if I am more prone to fatigue in my back because my lats are now in my boobs. Looks like Tylenol is gonna be my best friend for a while. I am sure I am going to be exhausted for the first few weeks. But I will get there.
Hah, I just had a funny thought…I wonder if I could actually make my boobs bigger if I did a lot of exercises that isolate my lats. If they ever start to sag, maybe this will be a way for me to have a non-medical lift!!!! I showed my physical therapist my pec moving trick and he laughed pretty hard. It’s way funnier when DD boobs are involved instead of some meatheads pecs.
Nothing has really changed boob wise, but I will continue to post a pic every week so you guys can see the progression and healing process if you choose to do so.
I can’t believe that this is almost over! God is so good!
