A new milestone this week…began driving…in the Delica no less! Climb up very carefully into the driver’s seat though…no pulling on grab handles…use legs only. Gave my brother a lift to pick up the push bike he fell off a few days ago (earned himself a hospital ride!) and took myself off to another physio appointment. Funny thing about the pushbike incident. He was attending a 1st Aid course for work…couldn’t have hurt himself in a more convenient place…right out front of the Ambulance Station!
Continence control has improved a little but I am still frustrated with false starts for emptying of my bowel. It’s surprising how this stuff consumes you! Physiotherapist Di Semmler gave me some more ideas about why I feel the urges and made me think again about just how my body works & how I may be misinterpreting some signals related to the surgery. I am enjoying my visits with her.
Generally every day I feel better although I had one very flat day early in the week. I think with Lyn back at work and being more or less on my own was wearing thin too. I managed some work from home but I am still surprised how tired I get. Got some more walking in too.
For those of you interested in erectile function I woke up once with an erection this week which made me think the earlier one I had in week one was not a dream. That’s encouraging! Next week I start on the Cialis.
Last bit of rest up over the Easter break (including some strategic planning for work & dreaming of getting back on the motorbike) and then I will try going back to the office.
