Hi everyone, thanks for all the comments and support from my previous blog. I saw the consultant a few weeks ago and he was really happy with my progress – the operation was a success and the scar has healed well. We went through the consent forms for the next operation and this is scheduled for the 10th June.
I am now back at work on a phased return so building it up slowly and I will have Fridays off until the next operation which is a help as I get tired very quickly so by the end of the week I am exhausted! I am trying to go swimming and for walks etc to make sure I am in as best condition as I can be for the next one!
It is a weird feeling at the moment and I have good and bad days. Some days I feel really positive as the operation went well and my recovery was good. Other days I feel a bit low as I am essentially in limbo until I have had the next one and I know what I have to face which is good and bad if that makes sense! Plus I have to decide whether to be screened for them again in the future. I am trying to just take it one day at a time, the whole thing has been a huge learning curve and has massively put everything in to perspective. I look at each area of my life quite differently now but I know I can’t make any decisions until I have the next operation which I pray goes as well. Thanks for all the nice messages though, and I will keep you updated as to what is happening.
