The sling came off on Thursday & I was told to start doing pendulums. I've been icing on & off & wearing the cryo/cuff at night. I feel AWESOME (for the most part). I don't have significant pain & am off the Percocet.
In fact, I'm typing with both hands today. Woohoo.
We bought some 100% impermeable band-aides so that I can take a bath today. I STINK. LOL I don't think I'll be able to raise my arm high enough to wash my armpit but I'm going to try to slip a wash cloth under to at least rinse. John is going to attempt to shave my legs.
My mom has been a huge help. She & Dad went to the mall this morning--we have Crate & Barrel; they do not. LOL
The one thing that stands out is how tired this is making me. I took 2-1 hour naps yesterday. This morning I'm ready to go back to bed already & I've only been up since 7 AM. That sucks.
I'm not attempting to get on my bike yet. I'm afraid of falling off. Or having it fall off the stand & having to catch myself. That would totally suck. Eh.
I go back to the surgeon on Thursday. I presume I'll start formal physical therapy after that. I don't know when I am supposed to go back to work. I probably could go back on Monday I feel so well. BUT I'm in no hurry. Ha
