I am showing the photo as small as I can and it still looks so yucky. I can't understand women (and men too I believe) that have this surgery just for aesthetic reasons but I guess when you are younger you still want to look beautiful. Mine was just necessary for medical reasons. The left one is not nearly as bad as the right one was, but the surgeon wants to do it in August. Perhaps I should wait until it gets worse? Will ask him on Tuesday but he may say I will look lopsided if only one is done.
It didn't hurt at all apart from the local injection and they are always nasty. I think I have 8 or 9 stitches all looking very neat and they come out on Tuesday morning. Hope all is healed up by then!! It is a wee bit sore in one spot so no complaints about pain. The eye is now only looking half as bad as above but I have to apply an ointment 3 times a day and that in turn gets on my specs which is a nuisance. I had to ice it for the first two days which meant I could do little else and it was sooooo boring. Would it have looked worse without the ice I wonder? Or could it?
I have been able to read (River said that was not good if I couldn't read), a wee bit but as I have to apply ointment to my lower eyelid before retiring at night I can only read for about 15 minutes and that is what I miss the most, reading. I have to continually clean my glasses 'cos of the ointment. Seems I need to be in bed to read as when I tried to read an article in The Australian yesterday (sitting up of course) it just didn't work out at all well. I've watched TV when there's something worth watching and been on the computer a bit as well.
It has been quite an experience and I now have to try and catch up with what everyone's been doing over the past 3 days and I've missed you all and your fantastic blogs. I'm not even sure where I am up to with mine!!
