girdle free, during the days at least. I go see the doc for my four week post op appt. Four weeks, technically, isn't until next Monday but my appt is Friday so it's close enough. I'm completely bruise-free--I will spare you a pic of my bruise free butt 'cause then it's just a pic of a nekid tush rather than the horrendous bruise that I had three weeks ago.
I will tell you: it was totally worth it. I'm lovin' my shape right now. Once I'm able (allowed) to run again, I will be out on the road like a fiend. Don't get me wrong, I love to hate to run but I know how good it is for getting me in shape. My military medical profile doesn't expire until Aug 12th, so even though my surgery (civilian) doc will be clearing me to exercise come Friday, I still have to follow the limitations of my military profile. Totally bites!! cause that's still another two weeks away. However, it just says that I can't run. I can pedal and I can walk and I can use the elliptical.
