Day 10 and counting ....

Not too much seems to be happening at the moment. 

 Bruising is defiantly subsiding now, in fact each day it seems so different and I am pretty sure the swelling has almost gone.  Looking back over the previous pictures the changes become even more apparent. 

The pain seemed to peak for me at Day 7/8 and now at day 10 it is so much easier – I even managed a full night’s sleep last night although I am still taking some medication.  Most of the discomfort now seems to be coming from the disposable stitches – I just wish that they would hurry up and dissolve because I am sure it would feel so much easier.  Up to now I have been showering but not taking a bath.  If the doctors says ok I think a bath would help the dissolving and healing now.

I am also not convinced that I am completely flaccid nor have been since surgery.  It seems to hang at about 4 o’clock (as you can see).  Perhaps that will be the new flaccid from now on, who knows. Certainly not me!!!

Spent yesterday at a family BBQ, not too much pain and I managed to drive there and back.  It’s the first time since surgery that I even wanted to try driving.  It was good, though I felt a pulling sensation a couple of time where I think the reservoir is situated, apart from that the drive was uneventful.  Saying that I do feel uncomfortable around the area where the reservoir is so perhaps I did overdo it slightly.

We own a busy café so I am still off work and taking it easy-ish, just to make sure I am fit enough to stand and run around all day when I do go back.

I am sure that come Wednesday’s visit to the doctor all will be revealed.
