It’s almost 2 weeks since my surgery. I’ve been home over a week and my stitches came out (painlessly) 3 days ago. My scar is neat and minimal – I think it will vanish almost completely in time.
I spent much of the first week after surgery in bed feeling pretty awful, both in hospital and at home, but since then I’ve been up and about more and more each day and feeling almost back to normal. I do get tired more quickly than usual but was well enough today to go out for a lovely Mother’s Day tea.
Thank you for all the help and support from everyone and my lovely cards, flowers and gifts. It’s all been hugely appreciated.
And a very special thanks on this Mother’s Day to my amazing mum, who has looked after me and made such a good recovery possible. I think she is looking forward to being allowed back to her own home tomorrow.
