Joining the losers bench

Recommended Posts

Got home from the hospital this afternoon - stayed 2 days. Not gonna lie, still feel pretty rough. Surgery apparently went fine, did the bypass and fixed a hernia. The stay in the hospital wasn't great. My IV infiltrated twice so my right arm is blown up like a balloon. I'm up 12 pounds from all the fluid in me. Sporting my stylish compression stockings for the next 2 weeks. Looking forward to getting through Sunday when I can finally have some Soup. Still no regrets.

Welcome to the losers bench ZhivagosGirl

The early days post-op can be difficult but the best advice I can give is that you take little walks as often as you can - even if it's just around the house.

Hang in there.  The first week or so can be tough, but it gets much better.  

We are here to support and inform you.  :)
