It has been two days since I had the surgery to remove the scarred/infected tissue from chronic Hidranitis in my left groin and things are going okay. I still have to wear my lovely stockings and keep my legs raised, so I am in bed surrounded by books, Dvds, my laptop, phone, Kindle and DS just in case I get bored.
The pain isn’t too bad, a little bit worse today than it has been so far but I’m keeping up with the four doses of Tramadol a day. What bothers me is how much blood is soaking the dressing, the patch gets bigger every time I look at and all I can smell is blood. I can’t wait to get it changed tomorrow because it makes me feel really grotty. At the same time, I’m dreading it because I know it will be uncomfortable, maybe even painful.
I had a nice treat though today – to celebrate four years together, my boyfriend cooked me a huge steak, chunky chips, corn on the cob and peppercorn sauce and served it to me in bed with my own little candle on the tray 🙂
For every cloud there’s a silver lining,
