Back to Normal
Yesterday I hardly took any painkillers which has meant that my bowels could finally clear properly as codeine is a constipating painkiller. I think that this has had two impacts:
1) Because my bowels are clearer, my stomach has gone down quite a lot so there is less pressure on the site of operation.
2) Any remaining tenderness/pain has now almost gone.
Although there has been some concern shown by Bowen Therapist colleagues and friends about me doing ballet again, I genuinely feel well enough to do this, and know my own body well enough not to push myself too hard. To be honest, I feel so energetic at the moment, that it feels entirely natural to exercise!
