After a long surgery Friday and a rough, sore Saturday, Sunday was the start of better days. By yesterday, I really felt almost normal lots of the time. I’m still tender in some spots, but the freedom of being without those awful tissue expanders is amazing. All of the muscle tightness and spasms are gone, and that’s a huge thing! I could tell the difference instantly after surgery and I continue to be amazed (and relieved) at how much different I feel.
I think I’m going to have to work pretty hard to follow all the rules– restrictions on lifting and activity– because it really doesn’t hurt when I get close to the limits. But if that’s the most I have to worry about, I count myself very lucky.
