Well today I felt pretty normal.
Driving today with no pressure pains and unexpected sharp pains in the little girls room. Stomach still a little tender and very swollen but my wounds seemed to of healed good
It's just great to gain a little control back into my life and have a bit of responsibility.
I loved picking up my son from primary school today on my own. The little things and how we take them for granted ey. I've been taken note and listening to everyone to just relax but it has been hard. Enjoying all my TV recordings and not missing any of my soaps. You really do have to listen to your own body and making yourself aware of the capability you can do each day by not over doing things.
Since my op I've been uniform/food shopping painted the garden decking cleaned the house top to bottom at least once a week cooking bathing the dog and attended a few nights out. But as much as I've felt at the time I've been fine Ive certainly took four steps back when Ive done to much.
I've been resting loads these past few days and its definitly paid off. I am still bleeding a little and currently on antibiotics for my bladder infection but felt so much better.
Due back in work on the 1st Nov. Glad I took 8 weeks off instead of 4. I work as a mental health support worker so my job is very demanding looking after all the clients with head injuries but also rewarding.
Have to say I don't think I could survive another month on SSP it's shockingly low. I have my wedding to pay for in Aug next year and know that's gonna pay for it in a hurry lol.
My partner has been very supportive but my girls age 16 and 21 have surprised me as I've had no support at all from them. That's really upset me I assumed we where closer then that for them to realise I needed alot of help. They will realise one day i suppose.
I hope you have all had a pain free day today xxxxx
