Let's talk about my intention to exercise. The first week of June, I was pretty good about getting a little walking in. I usually use my mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks at work to get up, walk around, have a snack, etc. On top of that, I walked home from work a couple of days and joined my husband for part of his evening walks on other days. Unfortunately, after a disappointing visit to the doctor, my second week wasn't so good.
I had been optimistic and thought my wound from surgery was healed, but it wasn't. Bleeding had pretty much stopped, but I wasn't completely healed right, so the doctor did a painful silver nitrate treatment. That got me bleeding again, was a bit painful, and I've been feeling so blah for the past few days. I'm frustrated with my body and myself.
How am I supposed to exercise if I'm not supposed to bend and twist? Standing and lying down are comfortable but sitting and walking can irritate my wound and scars. Sigh. I signed up for a Tai Chi class that meets twice a week this summer; hopefully that will be gentle enough. My next doctor's appointment isn't until July. Perhaps I'll heal by then? If not, I might need yet another surgery. I'm tired of having to have surgery. I need to work on focusing on healing some more.
