So the post CABG recovery is still proving to be a bit of a slog. I spent some time dealing with acute pains in my left shoulder, neck, arm.. that settled and now I've pain in my right shoulder! I was already recovering from muscle and tendon problems after reacting badly to Ciprofloxacin 2 years ago so it's not like I was fit and healthy before all this. It is making trying to exercise and strengthen my body slow and difficult as I easily tweak muscles etc... plus I have 3 bulging discs in my lower back which I'm concerned about tweaking.
Sleep is still a problem with anywhere from 2 to maybe 5 hours on a good night. Still can't get comfortable in bed and laying on my back is getting a bit tedious.
I'm due to start cardio rehab next Friday for 6 weeks, tbh I'm not physically in great condition so I'm hoping this won't be a waste of time.
Anyway, the other issue of concern is a lump that's developed in my left breast between the chest and armpit. It may be a lymph node or something but the GP has referred me to the cancer clinic Monday to get it checked, not what you need 5 weeks post CABG! Keeping my fingers crossed it's something less sinister.
Hope everyone is doing well!
