Postby tortillachip » Sat Jul 07, 2012 11:09 pm

I just remember taking it easy . . . no heavy lifting and I stayed on the couch for the rest of the day, only getting up to use the bathroom . . . no baths, sex, douching, exercise, etc. I don't think I did any of those during the 2ww (just shower and bathroom) . . . I ate lots of pineapple and tried to avoid extra hot showers and cold food . . . lots of warm food, like soups . . . did they give you a list of do's and don'ts? I'm sure if you google, you'll find helpful hints too . . . Good luck =)

Oops! I was thinking of the transfer . . . retrieval . . . hmm . . . just took it easy . . . pretty much same as transfer, only I went back to work the day after the retrieval and took three days off for the transfer . . . how'd it go, Tia?
