Well I saw my Gp yesterday who has signed me off work I was given codiene but after taking one with paracetamol I felt really sick. Such a good patient I'm going to make
My OH job takes him away from home so its just me and my youngest daughter, who is home from uni, she is working through her summer and needs me to get her to from work we live out in the country side, anyway I dropped her off this morning then went and did a shop ready for next week this was done very very slowly, and getting in and out of the car was to say the least painful and at one point I had visions of being stuck and having to call for help....however Im home and Im laying flat out on the floor giving myself time to recover, and its bliss.
I feel in good spirits today dont know why did wonder if when I go on the 9th they will take one look at me hobbling along and go no sorry cant operate... but Im still hoping things will improve with my back before then.
Your right about the thought of them cutting under your arm makes me cringe thinking about it and as for having to then lift my arm up. Lol Your encouragement and positive words help" where theirs a will theirs a way" but maybe in a couple of weeks time I will be saying Lols I cant do this ....
Your doing fine Lols the anxiety is at times all consuming maybe we should start up group relaxation classes for pre and post op care. General medicine forgets our mental health has to be cared for too, stress anxiety can have a major impact on our recovery and ability to manage this disease. Do you know how long a wait you will have?
I have my appoint with oncology booked already 2nd August exactly two weeks after surgery. I had a complete meltdown the day that arrived even though I knew it was coming I didnt expect it to come before surgery, anything that happens out of the order Im expecting it throws me completely i.e Im a control freak.
Hope your afternoon has been good productive with the weeding and the hens (love hens ) and given you time to relax and that needed relief from the worry.
Keep in touch xxx
