Random Post Op Thoughts

It is taking me a long time to shake off my post-surgery slump.  Even though I took two days off from work to recover, I just have not been myself.  I have been very tired and have had a headache since my surgery on Tuesday.  When I woke up this morning, my head was pounding and I felt nauseous.  I considered calling in sick.  Sometimes, though, I feel better if I get up and get going than if I stay in bed.  So, I went to work.  I felt pretty lousy all morning, but mid-afternoon my headache went away and I started to feel better.

I am having a hard time getting accustomed to my new vision.  My eyes don’t seem to focus together properly and I am having some double vision.  I have absolutely no close focus at all.  It is driving me crazy that I can not read the texts I receive on my phone.  Every time I get a text, I have to ask someone what it says.  In general, my phone is pretty impossible to use now.  I have to figure out how to turn on the accessibility features, so that it talks to me and I don’t have to try to read.

Tonight, John and I wanted to do something special with Ben, so we offered to take him to the budget movie theater.  He looked through the listings and chose a documentary, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold.  I had never heard of it, but it was by Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me), so I thought it would be good.  All three of us loved the movie.  It gave us a lot to think about.  We had the greatest conversation on the way home.

Once again, it is pouring rain outside.  I hope that the weather gets better for the rest of the weekend.  I really want to get outdoors and do some work in our gardens.  If not, at least I can take the chance to catch up on my sleep and break free from this post-surgical daze.

  1. Belinda… Hang in there! Getting adjusted to the change in your vision will take awhile, and perhaps the headache is post of anesthesia related. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
