Complaining and Bitching

I'm tired of my chest hurting.  I know it's just been three weeks, but it's been three weeks!  From what I hear and read, it takes about six weeks for the sternum to heal, so I should be about halfway through it.  I'm ready to be finished with all this and to be able to lie down and get out of bed without getting into positions the PT people taught me.  I've done well recovering from this surgery better than I expected.  Just want to fast forward through the rest of it.  That's all.  Just needed to complain.  This, too, shall pass.

Well I for one am glad to hear your doing well! It's all down hill from here. And don't strain yourself to much!!!!!

When Eldest had his sternum opened, pushed out and a bar put behind it - he wasn't allowed to get out of bed by himself at all. We all kept our cell phones beside us so he could call us in the middle of the night so he could get up.
This too shall pass. The kid ran a marathon four years after that surgery.

You're allowed to complain.
Plus, I think pain is a good sign of healing.
So....complain on!!!
