I am 5 weeks post op now and doing pretty good. Still achy and get tired easily. My pelvic area is still tender and twisiting and turning is hard. The first time I took a bath was this week and I laid back to read a magazine and soaked and I couldn't get back up!!! I had to get sideways and put an arm under me! I just laughed and laughed. Anyway, my questions: I go back to work in two weeks- I really dread it because I know I will still be sore and get tired and I teach special ed, so it's so intense. What is yall's experiences with going back to work? Went too soon? What did you feel like after a day of work those first couple of weeks? Next question, we can't life weights right? I walked and ran a little before the surgery but I'm still very overweight- so not in the best shape- but how soon did everyone go back to exercising and how was it? Did anyone go back to running? When? I'll start on my treadmill so I can take it easy. I won't try anything hard till I talk to my doc, for sure, but I was just wondering...
