Positive attitude will help you heal faster!

HI all, just wanted to add a very positive post since there aren't many out there. I am 4 weeks post op today exactly and am feeling really good! I was cleared to slowly get back into exercise so I went for a short walk today and feel great. My swelling is mainly under the belly button and you know what, who cares! I feel great, my flab is gone and I know that the swelling will go away eventually. If I am more swollen at the end of the day as long as I am doing good and nothing is hurting I am not letting my surgery stop me from my regular life. I am going to get on with it and know the swelling will get better. I have also noticed my swelling going down since I have been moving more. Lossening up those muscles some. Sitting around makes me stiff which I think isn't good for healing. Let's hear some more positive posts it brings the sprit up and lets others know there is hope and the swelling and pain doesn't last forever! :-)
