Day 36 - 23rd November 2007

well - two weeks after having stitches out here's how my scar is healing up - looking pretty gruesome still. it's all evened up a bit now.. doesn't look so creased up.

so - 4 weeks to go till the last cast comes off. for the next two weeks they've moved my foot to a neutral position - rather uncomfortable for all of today - but the doc says i'm doing great, and that the op went well - apparently their was plenty of tendon to join up.

i'm rid of the barbie pink plaster..
sadly it's been replaced with baby blue... groan.

back in two weeks..

Day 22 - 9th November 2007

sheesh... 2 weeks after the op... just over 3 weeks since my little accident and i've lost half my right leg (perhaps a slight exaggeration) - the left leg is beefed up from all the hopping..

Parking at preson royal was a nightmare.. ended up having to hop way to far..

booked in and was straight through to the plaster room, no sooner had i sat down than the technician shouted not to.
plaster off and straight into the treatment room - bit of a wait for the student nurse to come and torture me..
first by tearing the dressing off - equivalent to waxing the back of my leg..
then by taking my stitches out.. her mentor was a bit rough.. but once the student got the idea it was far better - no yanking the damn things out..

so stitches out and cleaned up a bit.. doc said it looked okay.. so back to the plaster tech for a new one...

after two red plasters a change of colour was required.. shame they only had pink.. definitely no pictures of that.

more pictures in two weeks.. back to my couch now..

Day 14 - 1st November 2007

almost 48 hours after my operation now - feeling much better - still painful in the mornings and relying on painkillers to make me comfortable. i'm well looked after by ma and pa so it's all good. roll on a week on friday when i get the cast off and my stitches taken out.. should be interesting to see how it looks..
