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..

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..

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..
