Up and moving



Recommended Posts

The next day they had me out of bed a few times to do laps around the ward. Did regular laps around my house & up & down my stairs from when I got home. I live alone so was up & down all day getting drinks, making shakes, etc. A friend was walking a kilometre by the end of the first week (with her husband in case she ran into problems) but she was pretty active before surgery.

The evening of the surgery I did a lap or two around the ward, then after that I did a lot of walking, I didn't sleep well in the hospital at all. If I was awake I did a few laps every hour.

When I got home (I had to isolate for two weeks due to covid) so I did lots of laps around the house and garden often.

Just a few hours after surgery I was walking the hospital halls. It actually felt good to walk and it helped with the gas pain.

My doctor had me up and walking a couple of hours after surgery. I continued to do laps on my hospital floor throughout the night when I would wake up until discharge the next day. At home, I did the same. My gas pain was gone within a few days and I think it had to do with all the walking. Good Luck!

Right after surgery. Walked the halls/room. Then continued to move around once home the next day.

In the beginning the tugging/pulling feeling coming from the one incision site was slightly painful while walking but I just took it slow in the beginning. Each day got better when it came to that incision site. By week three everything was feeling fine and I was moving normally with no issues, sleeping normal, etc.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
