Time to talk about the recovery time from Essure removal. So, I have started going back into the office this week. I am going in for half days. That way if I am sore or tired I can come home and rest and then finish up my hours for the remainder of the day at home. I am not going to lie . . . I am sore.
I have been doing a LOT more walking this week, and when I am sitting at my desk I am sitting upright instead of the reclined position I am in on the couch. While this might not sound like that big of a deal, it puts more pressure on two of the incisions . . . the one in the belly button and the one below that in more of the pelvic area.
Think about if you have a cut on your thumb, and then you do a lot of stuff with your hand, and that cut starts to “throb” a little . . . well, that is what standing and sitting do to my belly button.
I have learned to know when enough is enough. I left work at Noon today. Now I am on the couch, reclined, with an ice pack on my tummy. This feels so much better. After I finish this post, I am going to take a little nap. Then while Jeff is making dinner I can get a little more work in for the day. Yes, it makes for a LONG day since I start work around 7:30am, and I have to jump on the computer and do more work after dinner . . . but it is so much better to do things in just little chunks of time until my body is stronger.
I saw something online today that I wanted to share with all of you. There is a doctor that has created a commercial telling the problems of Essure! Here it is . . .
It can be found on the Essure Problems YouTube page, which is HERE.
