Listen for the gurgling.
I've had a few smaller ones, they have become progressively less painful... worked on the solid waste facility but after being non-operational for 2+ days, things aren't moving as quickly as normal. I do feel 10x better this afternoon than I did this morning and 100x or more better than I did yesterday.

I think a little bit of walking around helped me in the plumbing area, plus eating the right foods - it was still painful for a few days. I could almost have gone to work the following Monday, and Tuesday was definitely OK at work. Sneezing and coughing were painful until about day 7 or 8. I took a few 20 mile easy bike rides on days 8 and 9 (yesterday and today), and really have no discomfort whatever now. I see the surgeon tomorrow for my followup.

I also feel like I could go to work tomorrow but I'm going to hold off until Tuesday. An extra day off will do me good. Itching to get a ride in, I was going to do a 30 mile charity ride next weekend (before surgery was planned) but that is off the docket now... but if I can pull it off, I'll get some easy miles in next weekend for sure.

finally knocked out my 1st post surgery ride yesterday

only 12.3 miles but being my first time out, I didn't want to chance anything. I felt fine, good actually and feel great today. Glad to be back on the bike again, regret that it took this long to do it!
