I had my surgery last Thursday morning and was totally out of it when they sent me home. I totally forgot to ask if they weighed my gallbladder and how much it weighed. Since they pumped me full of fluids via IV, my weight was higher than usual when I got home. I decided that I’m not going to weigh myself til next Wednesday. Next Wednesday is also the day I follow up with the surgeon and hopefully the day my stitches will come out. I’m also hoping he’ll clear me to exercise.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t feel like exercising at all. I’ve been tired and sore for the last week. I thought I’d have a super quick recovery, but this gallbladder surgery has kicked my butt! I’m going back to work tomorrow. I’m working shorter days than usual and I’ll be very careful to avoid lifting and bending, but since the smallest things tire me out, I have a feeling I’ll be going to bed early for the next week! 🙂
I’ve been totally living in LuLaRoe for the last week. My stomach has been really tender and having anything press against it is painful, so this has been the look I’ve been rocking for the last week.
I thought I’d also share a picture of me on surgery day. I had to be at the hospital at 5:30 am and I had to take a shower with a surgical scrub before I left home. I also wasn’t allowed to wear any lotion, powder or makeup. My friends were hoping my husband would shoot videos while I was in recovery, but it didn’t happen. So here I am before my surgery.
