Today is day 11 after pain pump surgery. I am amazed at my body in regards to its reaction to this surgery…it is the FIRST time that my body is responding like a “normal” body would!
I am writing in consideration of my most recent surgery only…the fact that the incision areas are itching…that I can get in and out of bed…that I can sit in my recliner…all is progressing as it should!
I am sure a huge part of this is the fact that I have been super conscious to do EXACTLY as I had discussed pre-surgery with my pain specialist. I allowed my body to dictate each and every day…not putting any pressure on myself to meet any type of goal. By letting go of any preconceived ideas or outcomes, I removed a major stressor.
I have not focused on symptoms…not considered the amount of time spent sleeping…not concerned about what day it is…
In letting everything go, my incision sites have been allowed to heal as they should! I am excited for my upcoming follow up appointment. I am ready for this new adventure to begin.
