My doctor's office is great and they answer questions when I call, but I still feel in the dark. I'm a former teacher, and I LIKE instructions. I got a one page that told me not to BLT, to walk, and a few other details about the sutures, not to drive, post op appt. My doctor told me to sit up straight and to walk with good posture. They didn't even really tell me to not sit for long periods... I just kind of gathered that and then asked what a long period was. I got twenty minutes. And in another convo.., move every hour. So I'm trying to do that.
I guess I'll call again Monday about sitting. I prop pillows up on my back, but I get tired sitting like that. I already had low back pain and this sitting up straight feels hard. I feel wound up like a rubber and. I feel the most comfortable lying down. But I don't lie down a ton, just kind of an afternoon break...early evening...
