Too bad I don't have practice as a couch potato. Life would be easier.
That blast to destroy the kidney stone did collateral tissue damage and bruising to the kidney. So I took the prescribed pain killers. However, I have a hard time sitting and waiting to heal before stressing the body.
Soon I feel better and there is little pain. So I head out for walking and exploring. Bad idea. Returning from a half hour walk I am in pain. So back on the meds again.
Yesterday I did nothing to allow the body some chance to heal. A day wasn't long enough. This morning I thought a visit to a UofA campus museum seemed innocent and low stress. Not too much walking.
Wrong again. Once I was back home, I hit the pain killers again.
I finally got the message. Give the damage time to heal. So I will take a week off from exploring and walking.
With no experience as a couch potato and no TV habit, I will find tasks with minimal physical requirements.
