HDHOG, you're just getting used to the idea of it all. It's a lot to absorb. And a G9 to boot.
We all have a 'new normal' to adjust to. It's different for all of us. Here's where I was 2 weeks post op:
Catheter out on day 7, which would have been February 24. It was about
5 below zero and snow on the ground. I was freaking stir crazy and couldn't do anything about
it. Daytime TV sucks. I went back to work on day 20, just to get out of the house. By then I was doing 30 minutes a day on the treadmill, followed by an hour nap.
Alcohol was not even a consideration for a bit longer. I was wearing pads 24/7 until week 4, then went to the depends 'shields'. Then, one day about
week 7 or 8, I decided to go without just to see how it worked.
You'll make it, it takes time. And, you'll discover that the new normal isn't all that bad. Different, yes. (Naps are a wonderful thing), but not bad at all. Then the day will come where PC isn't even something you think about
all day. Then it's 2 days. Then a week. It really does happen.
