Remember, too, that you are aging and older than you were with other surgeries. Aging does make the recovery process more irregular and protracted.
That you have an underlying auto-immune disorder is also likely at play with your slower than wanted recovery trajectory.
I have fragile health. I have made it clear to my medical providers that I will not agree to any further surgergical procedures. None. Zero. Nada. Especially any life-threatening situation that may suggest a surgical intervention is a “no go.”
I do not want to be in any worse condition than I already am. Quality of life matters.
Every surgery takes a toll on the body. There is a cumulative effect.
The human body really is a marvel in its creation. Every surgery, even a surgery with intended benefits, disrupts the body’s natural order of being.
Rest. Gentle movement. Nutrition. Listen to your body. It will tell you what it needs.
Best wishes moving forward,
