I cannot imagine what each of you that have had the wrap go through as I also have not had the surgery. However, I do understand the disappointment and the frustration that cause you to go into a downward spiral.
Remember, pain itself is very fatiguing. Use your pain medication if you need to and do not feel guilty. Don't expect so much from yourself. It is OK to feel down and venting your feelings is a good thing.
Feeling angry is OK. Remember that anger is not wrong as it is a normal human emotion. We are born with the ability to feel anger.
Accept these feelings as normal and know that we are here to support you both in your physical as well as mental recovery from this surgery. Keep on moving forward and know you may have set backs but the good days will be back.
Try to eat a bite here and there frequently to get those calories in. If your doing liquids today be sure to have something to sip on by your side so it is easy to just pick up the glass and drink. No special trips to the kitchen.
Sending you healing prayers,
