So, two days on from the operation and I’m doing better than I thought I would be. I don’t look like I’ve been punched in the face and I’ve managed to get my contacts in. The plasters look horrible and it’s starting to itch like mad but it’s definitely better than expected. I’m not looking forward to having the stitches out because, as my mum so helpfully pointed out to me, how are they going to get the steri-strips off without pulling the stitches out? Cue much stomach turning thoughts in my head…….. Thanks mum.
