Going stir crazy
Today was my two-week checkup after the surgery that paused my life. I've been feeling pretty good, except for some pain and irritation at the incision sites and, perhaps, a lower energy level. I was told at the hospital not to do much of anything for at least a week or two and no heavy lifting for at least four weeks. The first part hasn't been too hard. I was feeling overwhelmingly guilty for the first week or so that I wasn't running or exercising. But after doing some internet searching and some chatting with fellow recent operatees (hello one pink fuzzy!) I came to the realization that I just had major surgery! I mean I knew that, but it hadn't really sunk in.


Well, the checkup went fine. The doctor said the incisions are healing nicely. He also seemed a bit taken aback that I had already returned to work and my regular daily schedule. (See, I should have been milking this more). I tried to pin him down on when I could go back to running. I'm not sure that I want to go out and run today (it's over 90 and my midriff is still kind of sore) but I was thinking perhaps this week. Nope. He says that I shouldn't be running until at least the four weeks is up. He said I could try some walking and/or swimming if I like, but no running. Blast! I don't like swimming and walking is so boring!(some cheese with that whine?)


I'm planning on pushing that schedule just a smidge and suiting up for the Met's Run for Home Plate on July 29. I don't care if I end up walking for the whole course. I really wanted to do this one and I got an entry (the race has been closed for weeks) so I don't want to waste it. I'm also going on a biking trip that weekend after the race. I'll probably end up just doing support for Chelly or sightseeing around the area if that isn't needed. August is pretty empty (why couldn't this have happened the first week in August instead?) so I'll be trying to build up my stamina again for the fall races.


As an aside from all the whinging, I have added a link in the sidebar to my Flickr account. I've posted a few pictures from my Colorado trip (pre and post operation - see if you can tell by my expression) and will be adding to it here and there.

    Glad the doc said you were doing fine. I was a little worried. Love the pics. You and Jacqui really look alike now.

    Yes, it really is major surgery! I didn't ask my doc about when to run :) I figured I'd just go when I was ready. Good to know that yours said four weeks - I'll keep that in mind! I know a fellow recent operatee (I like that word :) ), Michelle, who ran 2.5 weeks after her surgery. Not to plant seeds or anything... ;)

    Glad to hear that you're recovering quickly. But do return to running cautiously.
