Post Op. Update

Hey everyone, I know that last weeks post I had said I was going to try and make a post op clean with me, we started to do a video and after helping my daughter do her room I was really tired so that's all I got done that day, my boyfriend and the kids have been really helpful when it comes to cleaning and with that said I am in the middle of editing a video of a speed clean video, I will put the 1 room speed clean tagged onto the end and will make sure to let you know where it starts but keep an eye out for that.
So to give you a quick update I am now 2 weeks and 3 days post op, and I'm still a little sore but I'm up and doing almost everything I did on a regular basis now, yesterday I tired driving, but because of the nerve damage in my lower half keeping the speed limit is hard so I will give it about another week and then try again, I'm still not able to lift anything major heavy but I was able to lift the kids laundry basket (yes I know I should still not be doing that) but I am getting back into my old self so here's to hoping the next 4 weeks go by quickly :)

Now as for operation experience, It was rough, I ended up getting a minor wound infection because where I'm still partly numb I don't get the urge to go pee and sometimes if your a mom you will understand what I'm about to say, you get carried away and don't realize that its been 4 hours and you haven't been to the bath room because you have been busy being the rock of the house, and that's sort of what happened I don't get the urge and then a few hours will go by before I realize I haven't been using the bathroom, so my outside incision is great but inside wound had minor infection.
As far as depression, I have already had this issue and yes I find my moods are very back and forth right now but I have a great support system to help me when I need it and I cant thank them enough, and as far as pain meds go I have just currently gone 2 days with no meds its still gets a little sore and I get tired out quickly but instead of taking my t1 I just lay on the couch and lightly massage the area and it quickly starts to feel better.

I do have to say that I do still get frustrated because I cant bend over so anything that is on the floor really hurts me to grab so I try to avoid that still, and my weight has gone up and down the last 2 weeks and it is a little disappointing but once I have the ok from my dr to go back to the gym I will be doing so in the mornings after taking the kids to school.

With all that being said I just want to say thank you to everyone that has been there and following me on my journey, and to keep an eye out on YouTube for my posts :) and don't forget if you haven't already its 100% free to subscribe to both my blog and my YouTube channel :) and thanks again for all your support :) hope you have a good day :)
