Switch Off…

23 January 2020… Today is a rest day, had three reasonably busy days this week averaging 9000 steps a day so I am trying to improve the daily level of exercise. Awaiting notification of the next level of Cardiac Rehab, hopefully it will come soon. Please do not avoid any chance of getting exercise provided after surgery it is of great benefit to the recovery process. Chest pain is still there and it is attributed to the sternum, the information given to patients says to allow up to 12 weeks for it to heal but speaking to various other individuals that have gone through the same operation the response is very different, even specialist nurses have advised that it can take up to 12 months in some cases to really heal… So the message is relax, it will heal itself, there is no way to hurry it up…
