RTR, unfortunately you, like I , find that recovery isn't always a textbook picture. I had the same general crappy feeling for several days afterwards, culminating with a really crappy weekend of high fever, and discouraged attitude. It eased then went away with the 2nd week. I found that eating regularly, taking some fever reducing meds, drinking lots of water to flush the surgery drugs out (you do have a free pass now with the bag) and being active (walking) made a world of difference in my sudden upward recovery. So force yourself to walk, then follow with a period of rest, then get back up again. At this stage in the process, you should be walking at least a short distance on a regular basis, followed by rest, even adding more distance each day and resting between. Don't feel like you can't nap or recline lots. This is the time for it. By the time you get to the catheter out date, you should be feeling much better and ready to really begin to walk and climb stairs in earnest.
