On Friday I was six weeks out from my partial nephrectomy, done laparscopically. I did very well just post-op but I'm feeling frustrated as I seem to be pretty much the same every day. I seem to be ok if I don't do anything, but if I go out food shopping or just try and do a little housework my stomach swells up and I get crampy and tired. I've been working four hours a day and then I have to come home and rest. I have no stamina.
I had a hysterectomy three years ago and I recall feeling better at this point, and that was a full incision surgery. I also have fibromyalgia, so could expect a slower recovery than most, maybe...but just wondering what others' experiences have been. I have a lot that I want to do and I'm feeling frustrated that I seem to not be improving very quickly.
Happy New Year to all,
