I realized (after reading your post about the possibility of dues being paid for membership to the Wrapped Club), that you haven't been welcomed into it!
Here it goes!
Don't forget that you're just two weeks into a recovery that takes six months for most of the healing and a year for the rest! The laproscopic procedure provides a false sense of healing. It's easy to forget the MAJOR surgery that was done on the inside, when your outside heals so nicely.
You're already back to work, which is a challenge that many of us avoided for much longer than two weeks. You'll certainly find that the challenges of getting up and out to work all day will have an impact on your healing, so be kind to yourself. I was still spending much of the day on the couch at your stage of recovery!
Don't forget that you're likely getting increased swelling of your wrap, which can create swallowing difficulties, or at least some discomfort at the wrap site. This too will pass, and you'll see gradual improvements as your recovery progresses. Hang in there!
Glad you joined the forum!
