How long till normal
Hello everyone,
I am wonding if those of you who are further out can shed some light for me. I am almost 5 weeks post op and am still quite tight and swollen. I dont think i did very good pre-surgery research and i didnt realize how hard the recovery for this procedure is. I am an avid hiker... backpacker... mountain climber. i know everyone is different.... but what are some of your thoughts on the timelines for returning to these activities. I am most interested in learning how long it was before people felt "normal" (like they didnt have surgery).
thanks for your input
By the way.... I got a lymhatic massage yesterday to help with swelling. I highly recommend it.
