Holy Mega Moose gnu, your 'adjustment' goes way beyond massive.
Just the gall bladder removal is considered the deepest surgery you can have. You sound like your old self. Your activity will bypass adhesions and the like. Do what you gotta do to enjoy what you can as yu get better.
Chanty Lass you poor dear. I hope your exercise music will be fun.

I no longer have to wear the sling for my broken shoulder. It's time to step up the physical therapy. He's pleased with my progress so far, though. I'll see the doc again in a month, and that might be my last time seeing him.

Time for an update for those of you who have been following this saga. It's been three weeks now since the massive operation, The Whipple Procedure, removed my pancreatic tumor, biliary duct, duodenum, gall bladder and some other bits. It has been just nine days since I got home and two weeks since I had to stop the painkillers, which my battered stomach just could not face any more.
I think I am getting better. I am able to eat now and although it is agony, my digestive system is starting to work again. The pain comes from three sources: The incision (still partly open and deep) the messing about with my insides (it feels as if a medieval battle has just taken place inside it) and the returning digestive process. The latter is by far the most painful and usually takes a chunk of at least two or three hours out of the middle of the night.
The CBD oil may be having some effect, but it is hard to gauge how much. It still bloody hurts! I am told that enhancing it with some THC will help it to work more effectively. I have nothing against that in principle, but I don't really want to spend my days stoned - and I seriously dislike smoking these days!
I do seem to be getting stronger though it's all about very small steps. The weather is lovely at the moment and I enjoyed sitting out in the sunshine in the hulk of my ancient Transit bus. I am hoping that in early summer I will be fit enough to resume work on it. Wouldn't it be wonderful if both owner and bus could come back from the dead in time for summer?!
Yesterday I completed four circuits of my sister's beautiful garden. It's not like proper training, but in this condition it's progress. I am surrounded by love and kindness and I thank all of you for your support!

Journal entry by Daly Jessup — 4 hours ago

Amos Jessup asked me to et everyone know that he's doing well. He has improved at least 75% since the Big Fall, and continues in slowly get better every day. He wants to thank all the people who have so kindly expressed concern and encouragement. He just came back from an assisted walk up the block and back. He's started playing guitar and singing with friends. He feels that through time, he is going to recover 100%.

Love,

Ah, Chanteylass, it is that time of year
of which I have indelible memories from
my undergraduate University years.
February, I called it "infirmary month."

The break between semesters was over,
and it was never long enough, as summer is,
for a nice bouncing-back.

The weather was frequently forbidding and inhospitable.

And there were colds and 'flu's galore.
And Spring Break was too far away yet!

ChanteyLass sending love and lots of healing thoughts from sunny England, hope your shoulder heals quickly and you have support from friends, it must be horrid to be housebound and living alone.
My daughter has to start chemo on Thusday, a "new " treatment for crohnes desease, terribly expensive but after lots of meetings our wonderful NHS has got the funding. Might take a year but so much better tban more operations. A few prayers please, cannot tell you what a beautiful soul she has, the most kind giving and spiritual girl she is and a wonderful mother to her girls.
Fond love to all the crew,
Wendy xxxx

Check on insurance coverage before, and instead of, suing. You're more likely to come away with at least the medical costs covered. This is advice my wife (my live-in attorney) gives/gave when asked about lawsuits in similar circumstances. She also said mediation is always better than litigation.

Broke my shoulder. Slipped on ice, Jan. 20. Shoulder surgery on Jan. 28. Housebound, can't drive, live alone. A waterproof substance was supposed to be applied so I could shower, but the hospital was out of it. Let's hear it for US healthcare! Sponge baths only until at least my post-op appointment on Thursday. Nerve blocks were used just before wheeling me into the OR. I wasn't sedated yet. Gasps of pain. A friend who'd had knee surgery said she was partially sedated when hers were administered and felt no pain. I'll ask about these things at the post-op appointment. Probably won't be able to go back to the Y for 3 months, and then I'll only be able to do chair yoga for a while until my upper body strength builds and I can rise from my yoga mat. At least yoga has given me the flexibility to dress myself!
Trying to decide if I should sue because the parking lot where I fell hadn't been sanded yet. The manager said she'd called for the sander but it hadn't arrived yet. I've never sued before even when I might have had cause.
Other than that, life is good.

My last post here was full of stuff people probably misunderstood because as a former twin, I'm STILL forgetting that no one else is automatically reading my mind/heart.

I worried I or hubby would die and instead I loast two of the best friends I ever had, during this hardest time of the year.

I'm just now entering that annual cycle. It peaks around Christmas and stays at the peak through February.

I'm SO tired of hearing why/how others struggle at that time each of year-- in their rush to be heard about their story, they dismiss and then exacerbate exactly what is too hard for me-- it's too much like the dead, rotting mess I can't escape, polluting my space. "Tell somebody ELSE" is how I feel, but never say.

wysiwyg I agree with -in utero- memories. Those who never had formed them and repeated them in later years as a result of crises can not even begin to imagine the concept or clarity of in utero memories. Revealing what they have to say can be exceedingly important but memories are not the boss of a damn thing.

How you incorporate near death incidents are entirely your choice.

btw did you ever have a preference for left handedness?

So... the annual anniversary I deal with at the dark of the year is the death, in utero, of my identical twin at about 4-1/2 months gestation. It was a late twinning, meaning that the egg division was completed with timing that resulted not only in a shared placenta, but-- so rare-- a shared amniotic sac. I have the complete memory of dying (co-experiencing with my twin what she experienced), and the complete memory of struggling to survive her dying.

It's very rare for one to survive the other's death within the shared sac. The dissolution and resorption of the one affects the other. So, part of the annual cycle for me usually includes being grossed out by smells and disorder around me.

I work on this hard in counseling, and every year it manifests in a new way that I don't see coming. This year, it happens that when my energy will be at its annual low, my husband is retiring from a busy parish at the busiest time of the year. For both our sakes-- he's very tired-- I've negotiated that our actual final moving process will wait till March. Our retirement cottage in Ohio is furnished "enough" that we'll depart PA with two mattresses and kitchen essentials, and any valuables we don't wish to leave in the empty house.

I head back from Ohio to PA Dec. 5. I'm trying to simplify everything I can, now, so that our retirement goes smoothly.

And I just spotted one way it's come up already this year-- worrying that hubby may die of exhaustion. I'll have to work on that!
