I am home! They sent me home today cos I am doing well. My cancer has been cut out of me. Things are a bit odd, as one might expect a couple of days after surgery but I am quite well. The wounds sting a bit if I move around much and one feels like it is dripping once in a while (and I have a drain) but it isn't really, cos it a) can't drip and b) I have no feeling in that area so it is just some weird nerve thing. They kept plying me with paracetamol and voltaren at the hospital cos they want to make sure I have no pain but I prefer a little pain and no head weirdness from being plied with all sorts of stuff. Anyway, the pain is no worse than a minor cut with a band aid on it.
It is nice to be home. Nutmeg has harrassed me and sat on my lap for 5 minutes! Very unusual for her.
Hospital stay was ok. I have a new pair of thigh high white stockings - they are compressive to reduce the chance of getting DVT (blood clots). Didn't get much sleep though, mostly not to do with me! I was in a shared ward with an extravert in pain and then a chap who liked watching his footy through his eyelids (watching wasn't the issue, it was the sound!). But we survived and we're home and the operation went well. I'm not sharing pics though!
I started a sock on Wednesday and finished it this morning. It is the first sock I've knitted in months. Guess the sock mojo is back! It is mighty lurid :-) I was knitting the night after surgery (heck I couldn't sleep due to Ms Moaner in the next bed so I figured I'd try knitting instead and I could!). I'm also working on a very overdue shawl.
Time to go find something to eat. Food was a little light on - last night's tea was a piece of steamed fish. That was it! No veg or anything.
