So apparently this surgery lets you know when you have done too much. I knew this but the ways it kicks back if I do more than a tiny bit really is impressive. If I don't behave I wind up hurting, bleeding, with gas pain, and in a lot of pain. Overdoing is not too hard to do either; it's amazing how much we do during the course of a day that we don't think about. Twice in 3 days I've had to rapidly change sheets and clean carpet because my cat or I spilled my drink. I got worried about something I couldn't find that had slid under the bed and that caused issues. I try to go too long without pain meds and my body attacks.
I know this is normal and that it is also partly because I am so very tired from not sleeping well for weeks before surgery as well as getting almost no sleep in the hospital, but it is not good for my impatience level.
