I saw you were online last night when I was on which let me know you were there. I totally understand the lack of focus (5 weeks out it's getting better) and then pain, well, it gets better, but it just changes and gets me psychologically more now beyond just the surgery pain.
I'm hoping that you are able to walk (I know it's hard at first) but I think that is why I ended up with blood clots from having to lay flat for 3 days due to the lumbar drain and all the platelets they pumped into me due to how much blood they needed to transfuse --- I think my body could only handle so much.
Do please post as I'd like to hear more about what they repaired for you - how the future prognosis is and such. They are still having me see specialists to figure out why this happened as the obvious reasons aren't there - like Marfans, smoking, and they always ask if I have had Syphilis (spelling of I'm not sure). They can't even say it was my 4 pregnancies. Oh well - right? I'm just glad to be here and on this end of the surgery (I'm saying that as I'm 2 hours into my pain pills). I was hoping to cut back on them, but my body is just not ready and I would rather listen to my body than go crazy in my head.
