I now think it is possible that I will be approved by insurance for #breastreduction #surgery, which I need to further reduce back, neck, and shoulder pain and to make it possible to achieve and sustain alignment. Others I know who went through this transformation found that their center of gravity changed and they learned anew how to stand and walk--all for the better! Despite the expected positive outcomes, I am bummed that it will be at least 2 months before I can return to moving. I'm not sure when I will be allowed to raise my arms up, for example. This, after I was just pulling out of major #deconditioning here from a 2-year post-tibial tendon injury (which is how got the hEDS dx) and a long illness ending this past January. I may have surgery as early as June or July. Until then, I guess that I will keep on with as much exercise as I can do without triggering pain flares. And I'm thinking that, #postop, I can use my long mandated rest time to watch all TZC classes and educational recordings--a silver lining, huh? Does anyone have any general advice for making lemonade out of the lemons of enforced post-op nonmovement? ❤️Thank you all!
