Oh, yes! The first week or so can be so overwhelming. If you don’t have any concept of this surgery and recovery, you can get blindsided. But you’re truly on the healing side which you wouldn’t have been without the surgery. You will settle into a routine which will include more and more of the normal gradually. Be kind and patient with yourself and your hubby. Let your body do what it does best all by itself: heal. Just rest, move a little regularly, ice, elevate, and medicate as needed. It’s hard to get out of your own way sometimes especially when we put such high expectations on ourselves. Layla gave you some great distractions. This is not going to happen overnight but it will happen. I think you will be very pleased and proud of yourself for taking the leap of faith to get back to a better life. Slow and steady and we’ll be right with you all the way.
