Thank you to Everyone who reached out with messages after my post a couple of weeks ago … for sharing your honest journey with me and thank you for being a part in mine and making me feel like you’re holding my hand.. It helps
Doc says I can start swimming. PT has me on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill to simulate running. LOOK I am moving forward…
It’s been almost 5 months since my second surgery though it does feel like a year and 4 all lumped into one. That said I intuitively picked month 4 as the turning point when things would start to seem less challenging rather than the uphill battle I feel I’ve been fighting. The weight would magically start to disappear from around my hips and thighs. That bloated feeling would begin to wither away. My clothes would start to fit more like it should and I would start to look and feel more like myself again.
As can be expected, I still have limitations and staying within them is like coloring inside the lines. Even though I feel better there are still warning signs reminding me to proceed with caution.
My current challenge is finding the balance between doing and not doing too much. Allowing my body to continue healing while I continue to strengthen and start integrating functional movement.
Moving forward cautiously…
DO WHAT YOU CAN WHILE YOU CAN’T DO!
In peace, health & with much love,
