Happy 2 year surgiversary to me! It was 2 years ago I headed off to MGH in the early hours of the morning for breast reduction surgery. I was terrified, being alone, but it all went fine. The surgery went fine and there were no complications. Steph was staying with me to help me recover and so I didn’t have to be alone.
I was so fine in fact, that 2 weeks later I was packing up my apartment, moving heavy boxes, and cleaning in preparation to move to Scotland for grad school. Of course I shouldn’t have been doing any of those things, but I felt fine and it didn’t cause me any issues at all.
Last fall I had a revision to deal with some extra skin issues, and that has healed fine, but these scars are far more visible than the original scars. In fact, I can hardly see the original scars. 🙂 The only thing that I have really noticed lately is that they aren’t as firm as they were a year ago.
I had such high hopes for myself for working out after the reduction. It was supposed to make running and other high impact activities so much easier for me. Then I moved. I was busy and worried about school work and life in a different country, not to mention the things that were happening back home.
Workouts were sporadic. My food intake was less than stellar. I gained a lot of weight; putting me back to where I began over a decade ago. So much for my high hopes.
Today ended up being a wash. I’ve had such a bad headache (worse than usual) for the past few days that I haven’t felt well at all. I’m taking another rest day and not going to spinning tonight. I hope that tomorrow the pain will be lessened enough that spinning will be in the cards.
Tonight is the Olympic opening ceremonies. I know that whomever is doing the final lighting is a well kept secret, but I know who I would like it to be.
Are you watching the Olympics? If so, what’s your favourite sport to watch?
