Two weeks recovering from surgery: what do?
posted by broadway bill to Sports, Hobbies, & Recreation (19 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
I will be having a major surgical procedure next Thursday (orthognathic surgery on my upper and lower jaw) and I need some ideas for time passage. I would normally just sit at home and eat, but since my face will be in billions of pieces and all wired shut, that won't work this time.
I will be on painkillers, and I will be very swollen, and I will be in bed. I do not own a video game system, and buying one is out of the question (I may borrow a friend's PS3 though!). I never have time off (I have worked, basically, 7 days a week for the last 2 years), and I rarely have time to sleep more than a few hours a night, so I want to make the most of this period of forced relaxation.
I am planning on:
working on a passive research project that involves watching and coding a LOT of movies
What other relaxing things can I do to pass the time?
