I didn’t do a blog yesterday because I didn’t get up to an awful lot, other than eating myself into a sunday roast coma.
When it came to the evening I started to feel a bit under the weather. I was roasting hot, but it was a warm day. I looked at my breast and it appeared to have a red blotch on. I rung the hospital first thing and they told me to come in right away. Anything relating to infection is taken very seriously post op.
Off I went to the hospital and I was called in by the nurse, in came Mr Murphy smiling away. The red blotch is still there, Mr Murphy said everything was looking ok however he does not like to take risks so a course of anti-biotics was prescribed.
I also had a few other questions, on my left breast you can feel almost a wire under the skin. Mr Murphy informed me this was the stitches connecting the pig skin together. Another thing I’m experiencing is a cramping pain in my right breast when i bend down. It feels almost like the implant is doing backflips inside me, no one could provide an explanation for this. Im seeing Mr Murphy next week for further follow up and also for more physio. Things are definitely going in the right direction but It has been a lot harder than I first imagined. I can’t believe I am still this shattered over 2 weeks on. The fact I am not sleeping well at all will play a big part, I really struggle sleeping on my back.
I’m going to a BBQ this evening which I’m really looking forward to.
