Health Update – a week since my Laparotomy

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:30 pm by aleksan

It was a week today that I had my Hernia repaired by Laparotomy at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester, so I thought it was time for an update. Firstly, thank you all so much for your good wishes for a speedy recovery. I have much appreciated the love and goodwill, and it has helped a lot.

I’m am an impatient old Bugger, and at times in the last week I have felt pretty awful, not so much because of the post op pain, that wasn’t too bad, but because I have been very tired, fed up and generally a few degrees under. However gradually I have been coming up to the surface, moving about more and feeling less tired. Today, after a week I am nipping around much more, walking faster, and generally feeling more of the joys of life.

However there is no doubt that the older you are the longer it takes to get over operations and stuff. I am in danger of overdoing it of course, and even becoming a bit manic, but it has been made very clear to me that I must take it easier for about six weeks or so, especially no heavy lifting or “impact sports”! At nearly 73 I will therefore be avoiding Rugger and Speedway but can’t guarantee not to get on a horse before many days have passed….
