10 Weeks Post-Op

I am two full hands worth of fingers in weeks since my last surgery.  Ha, I don't even know if that makes sense!!  Time certainly does fly, and I wish that I was feeling a bit better.  I realize that I am like the world's slowest healer (which I don't understand because I feel like I should be able to will away my hip issues), but I do think that something is a bit off.  I know that I am waiting to have my abd/pelvic US done in two days to figure out the extent of my vein issues, but wow, PUFF do I go after doing activity (like pool work or two full sets of my exercises).  I really don't get it.  Increasing my activity shouldn't be this difficult.  I have developed some nice IT band snapping on my lateral hip too...on the side that was released.  Weird.  All this inflammation and swelling is so uncool.  I think it may be related to my vein issue (since the dilatation is on the same leg/butt as the annoying swelling).  It is just such a long road.  I am annoyed.  My left still has groin pain too.  I see the surgeon in exactly two weeks, and I need to see him to get some of these things answered.  I hope hope hope that this will be my last trip EVER out to Vail!  How wonderful would that be to say "astalavista Dr. P!!"???  I mean, I love the guy, but I would rather not need to see him every couple of months.

Tomorrow ain't gonna be fun....pretty much clear liquids and certain veggies/fruit for me all day to get my system clean before the US on Friday.  NO CAFFEINE either I get crabby when I don't get my coffee.  Watch OUT!!!!
