Thankfully, it went well yesterday.
Now the anaesthesia has worn off, I am experiencing some pain, but I am trying to grit my teeth and get on with it. The surgeon was not impressed with me that I had not arranged for someone to collect Max from preschool, but instead, was going to pick him up myself. I am supposed to take it easy as it will take approximately two to four weeks to heal. Thing is, I had not seen my son since 6.40 am that morning, and was missing him real bad. I told the surgeon that I was up and about just one day after I had a caesarean, so I will be fine. Besides, what he does not know, is that my ex-husband smacked me about just a few days after – so much so, I thought the stitches from the caesarean had burst. If I can survive that level of excruciating pain, I can survive this. I do understand and appreciate his concerns though.
With swollen knees, these are the fabulously fashionable (not!) socks I have to wear for two to four weeks to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Unfortunately, none of my clothing covers this amount of ugly!
Anyway, I hope everyone is OK.
