This edgy feeling is less about productivity and more about wanting to feel whole again out in the world. I was fighting an infection the six months leading up to my surgery. I went into this surgery without full steam. Of course, the body will take more than a few weeks to fully recover from the drain of that prior infection, antibiotics, anesthesia and yes, being cut wide open. The (albeit temporary) rub is that I know in my bones that I am happier, healthier and stronger than ever and am ready to get on with it out in the world.
