27 days post op. I get stronger everyday. The first 2 weeks were the roughest. I would advise having a recliner. I slept in it for 2 1/2 weeks due to comfort,and doctors reccomendation.I wish I would have had a "grabber" for when I dropped things on the floor. Also I purchased a bedside stool to get into bed because my bed is the kind that sets up higher than normal. The most I can say is embrace your rest and time off it is needed to heal properly.

Don't rush anything..... Follow Doctors orders......

Don't rush anything..... Follow Doctors orders... and get off as much time as you can.

It has been 2 years & 4 months

I don't regret one second of it. It is so worth it and it has jumped started a healthier way of life for me. I look better so I feel better which in turn helps me to eat better and exercise. I just wished I had done it earlier. I just got a wonderful compliment they thought I was 12 years younger than I am. Needless to say it made my day and really motivated me to go forward. Yes there was some pain involved but just think of it as temporary and that you can take this for a short term and getting wonderful results. I have to go I am busy checking things off my bucket list :)
