Nine Weeks (and a few days)

Nine weeks post-op as of last Thursday and went back to work part-time this week. Only allowed to work six hour shifts (my normal schedule is 12 hours) and only doing four work days for the next four weeks. I was SO flipping tired after each work day, but pain levels weren’t too bad. Definitely had to take Ibuprofen each night, but that was all. I’ve still been walking a little over two miles daily and continue to have zero pain when walking. I’m a little shocked at just how much moving and staying active plays a part in how I feel. Honestly, when walking, I feel like I could jog most of the way, just know I can’t quite yet. Although, let’s be honest, I’ve never been a runner. 🙂 I have to admit, I’m super worried about having to possibly work twelve hour shifts again. I go back to my surgeon for check-up and x-rays at the twelve week mark and am hoping we can figure something out for a modified work schedule. Thinking I can probably work up to eight or ten hours, but I’m not so sure. My stamina just isn’t where it needs to be yet.
