It’s been just over a week since I had nipple reconstruction surgery.
Here are some talking points:
*I can see again. My vision doesn’t seem to be blurry anymore. Yay!
*My left side looks like I’ve been kicked by a horse! The bruising and swelling are awful.
*I can stand to look at these new nipples. They are healing and looking much better. I wondered why I even did this when they uncovered them originally.
*It’s been a lot more painful and for longer than I expected.
*I’m still supposed to be sleeping elevated and on my back. Jon tries his hardest to get me to comply.
*I have two new holes, one on each side, to add to my list of scars. They are healing though, and I doubt they will be much of scars in a year or so.
*I still have a lot of stitches. I know the scars fade though and tattoos will supposedly make them all but disappear here in a few months.
*I’m exhausted again. Just when I felt like my energy was returning it has been wiped out again. I’m back to needing a lot of sleep and feeling spacey.
I’m thankful I’m here. It’s good to make it to this place and to begin planning for a much more normal future.
God’s plan is great!
