Booked to have my hair cut next Friday so I will be happy to be seen outside after that, my hair is like a lump of lard with my not being able to shower xx
I know in a way it has gone really quickly. yep no driving for six weeks, car is teasing me as I can see it from the lounge window, although I did go out yesterday and start the engine to warm the car up as it had not been started since before my op.
When I rang about my op results the secretary said if there had been anything sinister i would have heard almost straight away so fingers crossed for you xxxx
Yep I am not allowed to drive for six weeks, nor lift anything heavy, iron, vaccum etc., mind you I dont miss the latter two and my brother is doing a great job, might tell him I need to have him do it for a few weeks more than that xx
Ah granulation, I know a bit about that as it can occur on stomas I believe and in tracheostomy surgeries.
Everything sounds like it is going really well. Glad you are off the pain meds too, you know things are quickly improving when that happens. Is it 6 weeks you aren't allowed to drive or longer?
On the whole I am doing really well and feel well.
Still being treated for the small area of my scar that has not healed properly, however even that is turning a corner now and should only be another couple of visits to the nurse to sort it. It is apparently over granulating now so they are applying an iodine dressing every other day, cant wait to be able to have a shower as I am allergic to waterproof dressings which has stopped me having one.
It is is three and half weeks now post op, occasional internal twinges but there is a lot to heal inside, I am off all meds now, havent had a paracetamol since Sunday, not because I am being "brave" just not felt the need for them.
Hoping to get out and about next week to get my hair cut and perhaps out for lunch with a friend, getting a bit of cabin fever now.
Hey H !
I was thinking that too.......incredibly incredibly quiet. I think its kinda natural, and healthy actually, people moving on and living lives. I still pop on here and have a look in.....and my footsteps echo.....lol
Hows yer insides getting on ? ..and your outsides for that matter ? LOL
Gosh this thread has gone very quiet lately, I hope that is because you are all getting on with things and doing well.
Cant believe it is already November, where has this year gone to? We have had a lovely day here today although it is starting to go cold now, think we are forcast a light frost tonight, I am soooo glad that I dont even have to think about going to work at the moment.
thank you xx Think I will sleep well tonight with just the relief of knowing xxx
Thank you so much, celebrated with a rather large glass of wine xx
YAYYYYYAYYAYyay again, which I've already done in different words, but adding it a further time.
Wanted to share my good news with you all. It was a benign cysts in my womb so all good, onwards and upwards to my recovery now
Love to you all
Just got back from on holiday to some beautiful weather here, we even got the grass cut.
While we were away we came across a chapel dedicated to Saint Agatha, who is the patron saint of breast cancer sufferers. Okay, she does a whole heap of other things as well, (so to speak!) But I was tickled to find out we have our own saint.
Love to all
Whey hey Ladies
Oh how lovely to come on and see your posts.
Janey absolutely in your pocket and they are just being ultra cautious as they are with us xx
Wombat Woo - are you away or just having time at home? xx
Charys - peek a boo, yep we have talked elsewhere.
I am trying to be as patient as a patient with is not patient can be!! Didnt manage a walk today but I did manage to have a shower without flooding the bathroom this time, I am using Colin's overbath seat and had not quite got the hang of getting the water off the seat and me before I turned it to face outwards. Well the floor needed cleaning anyway and it gave my brother something to do
Sending you all fluffy huggles xxxx
I know we've spoken 'elsewhere' about your rehab H, I think you are doing wonderfully.
I KNOW! Its so oddly quiet on here, just the two of us then H ? LOL
This thread has gone very quiet and I hope that is because everyone is getting on with their normal lives.
Lee I dont know if you are still checking in on here, but was wondering how you are doing and sending you hugs.
Delly How are you dear you have gone very quiet.
Lesley how are things with you as well mate xx
Well it is a lovely sunny sunday morning here. am 12 days post surgery and apart from a tiny bit of my scar that is refusing to heal on the whole feeling good, I think the fog of the aneasthetic completely lifted yesterday as I felt infinitely more myself for which I am grateful
Have a lovely Sunday whatever you are doing today xxxx
Well I am 9 days post surgery now, doing ok still in a low level of discomfort but feel it most in the mornings after sleeping on my side and not having had meds for several hours but it soon sorts itself out once I have them. Taking things very slowly cant do anything else
Great news Janey!!!! What a relief to know its something 'minor' and yet explainable.
Hows you getting on now Lady H?
Have a fab holiday you lucky lady getting away from this weather xxx
Well had my staples out this morning and the scar is looking good, going back fo check up on Tuesday.
It has been a very wet day here today so really good that I am indoors and not mithering about what I could do in the garden
Hope you are all well and enjoying whatever you are doing
Day 4 started off in a lot of pain, but I now have my meds sorted hopefully that will not happen again because it was awful, expecially as the pain control they pump into you at the hospital has start to wear off which was a very big shock, got a sore coxics and numb bum into the bargin.
Just sitting doing nothing apart from moving around every hour as prescribed.
So happy you're back home Helena - but you're still not following docs orders!! xxx
Just popped in to check on Lady H. That’s great news, all done and dusted. Now you just need to sit back and do nothing other than your tapestry, read and watch telly. You’ll find it difficult being such a busy bee but at least you know the garden can look after itself now H, well, as a very new gardener, I think so anyway.
Will be looking in for updates on your recovery xx
