I am home anyway.
The surgery went well, but I was under for 11 hours total. I am pretty uncomfortable right now, but I wouldn’t say in a lot of pain. There is some obviously.
I have 4 drains that are still draining fluid out, but they should be taken out on Thursday. At least two of them. That should make a huge difference in my comfort level.
I have seen the new ‘girls’ and I have to say I am impressed. They don’t look much different than my old ones. They are swollen right now, so very similar in size although eventually they should be smaller.
Haven’t really had a chance to look at my belly since it is still bandaged and I have to wear an abdominal binder. I can tell I am smaller, and that in itself is quite weird. I can tell when I walk my centre of gravity is different. My weight is more over my heels than my toes because I am not carrying as much in front. I wonder if a non-dancer would notice that.
Recovery will be slow and steady. The goal right now is to get some of my drains out. I am walking almost upright, and in short bursts. Eating well to give my body the best chance to heal.
I will keep you updated.
