recovery is an odd thing…

just thought i’d mention that i’m finishing up my first week of physical therapy. right now they are concentrating on just stretching the back muscles and very basic core strengthening. therapy takes less than an hour and i’d have to muster up a powerful hot flash to even think about breaking a sweat.

and yet…
the back manages to get really sore from the effort.

the other weird thing is the swelling around the incision shifts a lot. sometime its above, sometimes it’s below, occasionally it shifts from right to left. when i lie down it sorta evens out. i wonder if it shifts with the moon? i should check that out. (tides of edema)

ohell…i think i’ll go for a walk. i can DO that now and it’s wonderful.
