It has now been three weeks and one day since my heart surgery and now I’m definitely feeling the pain
My rib cage is obviously knitting back together and the slightest burp, sneeze or cough is agony. I think I would feel better if I could sleep but for some reason every time I fall asleep laid down I feel like I’m being kicked which instantly wakes me up
I’m walking around more everyday and yesterday I ventured outside our apartment for a short walk which was exhausting. As usual I expect far too much too soon !
I’ve been sat on the settee and on my office chair like a nodding dog because I can’t keep my eyes open during the day. No doubt I won’t be able to shut them in the night 😬
All in all I’m a bit miserable ☹️ I’ve joined the. British Heart Foundation website but very few people know anything about Myxoma’s because they are so rare. Having said that I have had some encouraging replies, apparently ribs only take six to eight weeks to heal! I can’t wait 😊
