    I'm gonna have surgery on monday (gonna fix my tailbone), however my doctor said that after the surgery I'll have to recover at home for about 1 - 2 months before I can get back to school.

    So now I ask you, my fellow GF:ers, do you have any suggestions on what I may do to pass the time during my recovery?

    What (physical) restrictions do you have during the recovery period? I mean do you have to be in bed or can you sit down for a long time, etc. Activities like reading and watching videos come to mind. If you can't sit down maybe you have to arrange the room so that you can watch while in bed.

    Lots of movies, computer games, console games and Percocet :) Thats what I did when I had my wisdom teeth out last March.

    Here is to a speedy recovery.

    dude, isn't it obvious :lol:?

    you're doin' it right now... or you were when you posted that message haha.

    Ok so if you don't want to turn into a GF freak then I guess you could use those couple months for.. self improvement? You know, buy some books and catch up on reading, maybe do some research. Its what I'd do if I was house-ridden for a long period of time so that it wouldn't feel like I'd missed out on learning at school.

    I dunno, it all depends on your personal interests. Also, like ysa said, the physical restrictions.

    I've been told that I'll be able to sit down after the surgery, the only thing I should avoid is walking/moving around too much. But I guess I'll spend most of my recovery in bed.

    when I had my heart surgery, I was sidelined for 2 months. I passed the time by sleeping and watching tv. I also helped my aunt at her nail salon by answering the phone and talking to customers.

    I hope that your surgery goes well and I wish you a speedy recovery.

    I remember when I was out of everything for an entire month because had poison ivy really bad (I'm talking to the point where I couldn't even put on a shirt because it hurt so bad).

    During that month I beat pretty much every N64 game I owned, it was awesome. but some things I'd suggest trying because I know how boring it can get...

    Watching TV
    Spending time at GF
    Playing the GF arcade
    Playing videogames
    write something

    What kind of physical limitations are we talking?

    Start writing a novel if you have any writing skills. Once you get into the story you're writing then the time passes quickly.

    I would be playing computer games, watching lots of movies and TV shows, reading books and coming on GF a lot :)
