Post-Op Update

Posted Jul 20 2010 1:34pm
Hey everyone!

Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers during my surgery! I'm now officially 11 days post-surgery, and am doing well! Surgery went well overall, although I had a bad reaction to the anesthesia which caused me to stay overnight in the hospital. My four incision sites are healing well, and my pain level is almost non-existant. After my reaction to the anesthesia, I was very leery of taking my prescription pain medication, so I stuck to 400mg of ibuprofen, and did just fine. My only gripe is that my energy level is still lower than normal, which is a real drag! I've become one of those old grannies that naps in the afternoons, or I'll just fall asleep while watching TV lol The important thing is that I can tell I'm getting a little better, day by day!

My goal is to follow my doctor's orders to the tee to ensure a proper recovery, then get back on track with my workouts. My ultimate goal is to start training for the 2011 Chicago Rock n Roll Half-Marathon as soon as I can - I'm going to PR that bugger if it's the last thing I do! :)

Hope everyone is doing well - let me know what you've been up to!
