I am a mother of 3~ 7 years, 4 years, 2 years. I am worried how I am going to take care of them post op. My mom and husband will be home the first week after surgery. I'm just worried bc my 2 younger ones are momma boys and are always on me and climbing in our bed at night. I had C sections with my last 2 and it was tuff recoveries but I had a lot of help then, sorry for going on and on this is just something that I'm having major anxiety over.

My kids are 7 and 3. I just told them that they had to be gentle. Once they weren't so yucky looking , I showed them my incisions and told them I have owies so they need to be careful with my tummy. My 3 yr old elbowed me a couple of times when playing, but otherwise it was fine. I moved a little slow, but otherwise I was okay caring for them after just a few days. I was really tired and needed naps though. Good luck!!

This is funny, because I made almost this exact same post a few days back. My kids are 7, 5, and 2, and my biggest anxiety about the surgery is how I'm going to do school drop-offs and whatnot when I can't lift my 2-year-old into his carseat for 6 weeks. My mom will be staying with me for the first week, and my husband will be home from work during that time, too. After that, I think I'm going to ask one of the other moms at my son's school if she could give my son rides for a week or two. If it's anything like my gallbladder removal surgery (also laparoscopic), I'm hoping I'll be mostly back in the groove after about 3 weeks.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
