I am really looking forward to exercising just in the slightest! I do have the best of intentions...I purchased a little mini stair stepper b/c I love how it makes your bootie burn...AND I can move it around the house and use it while my son hangs out in bed...anyway, I was so excited about
getting this b/c my UC was at a point where I could do some sort of movements...so I was starting to walk our dogs after my son and husband went to bed...I was SO HAPPY!!!
Well. Two days after purchasing my amazing stair stepper we had a water leak from our claw foot tub in the bathroom and I slipped and seriously damaged my knee...it was so painful I saw spots!!! THEN that same week my first abscess surfaced in my heal and that following weekend the MRSA infection occurred in my arm, and the following week I was hospitalized. GRRR!!! So, after being left with
open wounds and serious pain I could no longer use my stair stepper or walk the dogs...once I was able to walk the dogs again my third abscess arrived on my shoulder!!! AND my UC was crazier than ever so it hurt to do any form of exercise.
Needless to say I am very happy that this surgery will not only get me away from abscesses, but give me back time with my dogs and my unused stair stepper. The unfortunate thing is, is that I three (two came up yesterday) skin cysts under my left armpit and I have a feeling they will be lanced or removed during my colectomy. *sigh* But I do have a container of lidocaine gel, so I'll be smearing that stuff all over my armpit until they're healed.
Have any of you guys had armpit issues? I'm nervous. I can handle the other wounds b/c they were on surface areas, but the armpit? OUCH!!!
Well, thanks for listening/reading to my venting. : ) I'm becoming more and more nervous as the countdown begins for my surgery.
Have a great day ladies!!! You are AMAZING!!!!
