Another recovery day!

I'm not sure how many of these hanging around the house posts I can do and make them anywhere near interesting, because I am bored out of my mind!

I got beyond bored long about 6 PM and went over to Wendy's for my little burger and fries.  With a drink it is 2.99.  It even has lettuce and a tomato on it!  And it didn't upset me as much as the other day, so I am getting better.

From there, I went to the Wal Mart that is 6 miles away, not the near by one here at our house.  They have the exact same merchandise, but at least I got out farther away from the house.

I walked the full length of the merchandise end of the store back into the auto section, purchasing another of the little battery tender trickle chargers.  I came home and put it on the BMW since it gets driven very little.

I still do feel the bouncing around on my insides, and it becomes uncomfortable after about 20 minutes, so I am at my limit for now at 8 or 10 miles to a store.  I am trying to be good and not extend myself beyond what I can reasonably stand, but I have to be ready to go back into the surgeon's office next week, so I can't just lay around the house.  He will not understand if I am not progressing normally, so a balance is somewhere in the middle, and I think I am achieving that.

But just the same my behind is going numb driving this recliner all day long!!!

  1. Recliner numb bum is a rather comman affliction experienced by many older North American males. It is reported that too much numb bum is dumb but too little numb bum, as in your case right now, can lead to some additional troubles in the the Tum. Some fun huh:))

  2. I know what you mean! I have spent more time in the house on the couch than I ever have!! We don't even have a recliner. I go back to work this Monday so the "at home" part of recovery is almost over for me. I can empathize with the jostling in the car too. On the trip home from the hospital, I think I felt every crack in the road, and pot holes were terrible! Now riding in a car is back to normal, so you will get there too!! :)

  3. Take it slow and recovery correctly - it will take a while but hopefully you are well on your way!

  4. Hang in there! I had radical prostate surgery eight years ago and for the first six weeks I thought I would never return to what passes for normal for me.

    Now, it is a distant memory. Just go at the prescribed pace and you will feel normal again.
