Helloooooo! Here I am, back to my usual happy go lucky self. It has been a long road of recovery. I never in a million years would have thought that it would be this hard. The first surgery in January, the partial nephrectomy, was easy, I guess I shouldn’t say easy, but I managed fine. Now, come the hysterectomy and the full nephrectomy, then the infection…whew, it was hard!
So, anyway, I am staying positive and walking around 5 miles a day. I walk, and I walk and I walk. I am getting back in shape, however, I have a roll right below my ribcage. If you know me, you know I do not gain weight in my gut but rather in my butt. Now the butt area needs some weight management, but I just do not get the gut. I have been told NOT to do abdominal exercises as of yet, for another 3 weeks. You would figure though with the walking, and the eating correctly, the roll would be shrinking…NOT. So, to ease my mind, I called my urologist and she made me an appointment for next Thursday to evaluate my roll.
I will return to work on June 9. The doctor (gynecologist) does not want me sitting upright due to the wound infection. That is all right with me. I am enjoying the time off. I walk and I walk and I walk. Perfect weather for walking.
