I went for my first postop followup after the bilateral foot surgery last Friday. He said all looks good and will see me in 2 weeks to take out the sutures. I'm still in a cast on the left foot and band-aid and surgical shoe on the right foot.
I'm back home at my apartment tonight and for some reason it doesn't "feel" right. I don't know that if it's from the reality of the surgery setting in or moving home from staying with Mom and Dad for the last 5 days. It just feels somehow "downer", "wrong", just an odd feeling that has my anxiety level way up. Could I have gotten used to being with Mom and Dad and it's lonely here (usually I love my apartment and being here)? I just can't seem to put a feeling to what is inside me. Is there such a thing as "locational" anxiety? Like I was feeling "safe" at Mom and Dad's and now home I don't? Does that make any sense at all? Usually my apartment is my sanctuary, my "safe" haven.
Anyway, just wanted to check in and say Hi and I'm home and will be reading lots the next few weeks. The doctor moved my return to work date back from June 11th to now not going back until June 19th. Sounds good in theory but in reality since I can't really walk too much and am pretty much stuck, it doesn't sound as good as it did a week ago. Could be a L-O-N-G three weeks.
Thanks for listening. Gonna go put some ice on my feet and take a pain pill.
