Surgery as a Healing Journey

On February 11th I had bladder repair surgery that I had been putting off for quite awhile. This surgery was not the first I’ve had to make these repairs, and my experience in the past had been a grueling and painful recovery, which is why had been dragging my fee. Finally, I made the decision that not only was I going to have the surgery, but I was going to use this opportunity to heal at every level – mind, body and spirit. My body’s response to the surgery and the recovery process was dramatically different from the first time. I woke up from anesthesia with ease; my bodily functions returned quickly; I used far less pain medication; my incisions healed quicker and I have been able to walk much sooner than last time.
