I say my surgeon yesterday for a follow up. He asked about my symptoms since I have been healing and he was extremely pleased that things have gone well so far. He was surprised to hear that I caught the onset of pluracy which means I didn't need antibiotics and just a little tramadol and Motrin for a few days cured it. I still have two more appointments to go to before I find out just how well by body is doing with this surgery. My brain is getting better with the PTSD and guilty that makes me cry here and there but even that is getting better. I still get emotionally when I talk but I can hold back the tears a bit better. This is going to be a long recovery but the past three weeks have been good. I'm so proud. Now I'm not jumping ahead and I'm going to start doing all the things I use to. I don't like to be lazy but I am walking more and that's a start.
I'm going to do this one day at a time and no faster. Hugs and much love to all who suffer AF VF and all the stuff that's in between, before and after.
