finding my fly: 6 weeks

4 Nov

Tomorrow I see my Physician’s Assistant who oversaw my surgery. This will be my first contact with someone on the surgical team outside of the nurse who checked my sutures at the 10 day point since surgery. 6 weeks ago at pretty much this exact moment I was waking up from anesthesia and today I’m pretty much pain free. Currently the only physical challenges I’m experiencing is that my core is weak, so sitting for long periods of time is difficult because nothing is supporting my spine. All 1376545_10101438814271685_1451975303_nof that should change soon though because hopefully tomorrow will result in me getting the green light to get back at it.

So what does that mean? It means I’m going to have to be patient with myself, it means that I’m going to have to take my time, love on myself and be smart about how/when I challenge my body.

I hope to spend the next couple months improving my core strength through pilates, yoga and physical therapy exercises as well as cardio (biking, elliptical, treadmill, etc.). Then I hope to add in more high intensity activities like weight lifting, jogging, etc.

I hope to be back to moves like the one on the right sooner than later. Too long pain dictated what I could and could not do. I’m ready to have control over my life again and forever.
