Start the day quite well Steve. I might be overdoing it as I went back to work within 2 weeks. But my work is not hard. I am 6ft and weight 185 before surgery and down to 175. Same as I weighed when inducted into the Army in 68. Back up to 179 this morning. I have never eaten cheetos in my life and I crave them right now. That and a good grilled cheese with tomato on it. Was in pain last night and not sure if that was from going swimming yesterday or cleaning up my home office. Took advil as I try to stay clear of whats left of my pain meds. I do well until mid-day and now I am just about
7 weeks post surgery. Doubt is not a good way to think and I guess I worried that since the IV came out of my arm during surgery and they had to stop the surgery to redo the IV that might have let to addtional bruising and pain from possible movement while the robot was doing its thing. My right arm was swollen to 2-3 x its normal size after the surgery. Back to norm within 3-4 days.
That is the great thing about this forum it allows you to see if you are in the same boat as others. Hope to be pain free soon.
