Well I am happy to report I am finally starting to feel better. I still have pain at the surgery site but the pain meds take it virturally away. I am also taking less pain meds now too. My overall feeling of well being has improved since starting my blood pressure pills. Who knows how long I have been walking around with high blood pressure untreated. My pressure is much better now and I have more energy. That is amazing me.
I have the energy to clean the house now..do dishes..cook dinner. Now I am starting to feel like myself again. I still follow the no BLT trust me. My husband has even noticed the difference. I also don't need a nap everyday like before. I was tired all the time..short of breath with anything. I know the blood pressure was causing all of it.
So as much as I hated to be diagnosed with hypertension. It is a mixed blessing because the medication has helped me in my recovery. I see the surgeon in a couple of weeks. I am going to ask him to release me to return to work. Financially I cannot stay out any longer. I spoke with an old supervisor and there is a clinic nurse position open right now. So she told me to apply for it. It isn't my #1 pick of a job because it is a float position, but now isn't the time to be picky. I should be thankful I can get a job right now.
Just wanted to let everyone know your support throughout this time has meant a great deal to me.
