I feel good, but I lose my energy fast. I'll start doing something I normally would do easily, and can't finish it. I am getting ready for step 2 surgery this week and want to get things in order, but I'm finding my desire for a frantic pace and getting through my to do list is not in keeping with what my body wants :) My doc said a full year from final surgery to feel "normal." You are definitely not alone!
how I feel. I get all raring to go in the morning and do about
half of what I had planned... and then I have to go home and sit around doing nothing
ps not to derail but GOOD LUCK with step 2!!!
