Another lesson from surgery...
In prepping for the surgery I had this past Wednesday, I read a 56 page thread on people recovering from this procedure.
Time and again the pattern of recovery emerged the same. The first five days get gradually worse before it starts to turn around.
Doing that research and having a realistic expectation of what will happen has made the last couple days much more tolerable. Today is day 4. If I hadn't read that entire thread, I might be wondering why I'm not getting demonstrably better yet. I might be sweating things out and worrying too much (which wouldn't help the healing).
Instead, I'm hunkered down doing what I'm supposed to do - take my meds, drink lots of water, get nutrients, and plenty of rest.
Do your research, be realistic, and stay the course (and take your meds, drink lots of water, get nutrients, and plenty of rest.)
Life lessons, business lessons.
