Paying for Excess Activity

Two weeks ago today, I received a total laparoscopic hysterectomy, oophorectomy, and bladder sling surgery. It’s been a somewhat challenging recovery to date, to be perfectly honest.

I’ve been trying to strike the correct balance between rest and activity. I know that I shouldn’t overdue my activities. At the same time, I need to be as active as I can possibly tolerate.

However, I really think that I attempted to do too much yesterday. Today, I really appear to be paying for my previous level of activity.

Achieving a delicate balance between rest and activity is very important, for achieving optimal post-surgical results. Actually, developing this balance is essential for optimal coping with chronic illness.

Consequently, I’ve decided to take it easy today. Tomorrow morning, I have my follow-up appointment with my gynecologist.
