I am almost 7 weeks post op & still having some issues like SOB & pain in the left side when I bend over & breathe but I think that's from coughing too hard for the past couple of weeks when a cold settled in my chest. I'm still very very tired. I went back to work after 2 weeks although the dr wanted me off 3 ~ sedentary work but 9-10 hrs a day due to workload. My point is that you are only 2 weeks out ~ I know it's hard but be patient, recovery is slow as I'm finding out (thank you forum members)
Pain is normal especially during the first couple of weeks. My surgeon told me no bending or lifting more than a gallon of milk for at least 3 - 4 weeks. Baby steps! I'm still gradually discovering my new normal ~ if I think I'm ready to try doing something I try it. My body lets me know if I am ready or if I'm not.
Did your surgeon give you pain pills? I don't like to take them but did the first few week if I needed them. Mine gave me 25 & I guess he did that for any break through pain. Hang in there ~ we're all in this together! Good luck!
