Well the day starts well with the news that I’m being moved to a side room. Although it’s on the corridor it will be a little more private and hopefully quieter at night. Nights here last forever and it’s not unusual to feel you’ve been sleeping for ages only to find out it’s still the middle of the night!
Consultant came to see me and he’s still happy with progress, each day I do feel a little stronger and the pain that I was getting is still reducing, not gone completely but definitely less than before.
I feel more positive after the negative thoughts that I had the other night.
So as I write this it’s the morning of post op day four. The room is quieter than being on the ward but the chap in the room next to me seems to think that we all want to hear the latest wrestling news from America and also the latest events on the Gary Barlow show, Shine, I think it’s called. I for one am not that interested so I may need to have a quiet word. Quite why it has to be so loud I don’t know. I guess if I’m finding things to moan about I must be feeling better!
This morning the consultant came to see me and we are now talking about when I will go home. The main issue is how on earth I’m going to get there. I’m not able to sit so I’m going to have to perch on one cheek for the journey home. He then would like to see me in clinic on Monday so he can have a look at the wound and remove the dressing. I still have a drain coming from the wound and he wants this to stay in for a few more days too, hopefully this will come out on Monday as well. That’s the next problem, how do I get there on Monday??
Anyway, whenever I come home it’s going to be an issue but there’s not really anything being done in hospital that I can’t do at home and I’m sure I will recover quicker in my own surroundings.
So I’m going to see if I can get a mobility taxi for the journey home which I can just step into rather than have to climb down into a car or up into say a four by four. It’s certainly going to be interesting.
I’m nervous about coming home too early but I’ve got to come home come at some point.
The next few days are certainly going to be interesting, that’s for sure.
That’s it for now, just thought I would post a quick update.
