Recovering From Surgery: Three Weeks Post Op

So it has been three weeks since my surgery and I must say that compared to the last time I am feeling great. I was able to lie down on my stomach last week and it was real relief to not have to go to sleep on one side so I can be comfortable. I am still on the pain medication but I have reduced the number of times that I take it during the day and I am going for longer periods without needing to take anything or without feeling the stabbing pains in my stomach.

I went back to work one week after surgery after being told by the doctor that I could do so if I wanted to. He just told me to take it easy and not life any weights and to rest if I felt tired.

I have to go back on an iron regimen to build up my blood levels once more because being anemic leads to fatigue easily and I have to walk quite a bit during the day.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the prayers and the messages because they really helped me to feel better and I am sure that feeling good helped me to recover faster as well. I wanted to thank my guest posters during the week that I was in recovery because they provided fresh content and did not let the blog stagnate.
