As promised yesterday here is a picture of my bruised left arm – which is a LOT better believe me! There is more bruising around the elbow than the shoulder but apparently this is normal.
I said I would only post if there was something to report – and today is definitely one of those days. I have managed to put in my contact lenses today and you would not believe how much better i feel just having them in. I am also feeling less nauseous today as I’m slowly reducing the codeine and am pleased to report that i feel more aching and stiffness in my shoulder than actual pain – but I’m prepared for the fact that this may not be the case tomorrow.
So fingers crossed its all going in the right direction 😀

Great news! One question … why is the bruising on your arm? Is there some on your shoulder too?
Very little bruising on shoulder, I think its travelled down my arm as it was held up at right angle to my body during the whole surgery.

Glad you are making progress. I go for my pre-op tomorrow, but I haven’t got a definite date yet. We are coping, but we miss you! x
