1 week ago today I had Ablation--- apart from major jaw problems, swelling, pain, bruised tongue and sore throat, I feel pretty ok. However today I took a shower and also washed my hair-- 1st hair wash-- still ok-- but went to dry it--- couldn't hold the hair dryer up to to do it--- hey ho--- I brushed hair and left it-- least it's clean! It is surprising what we take for granted in daily life and equally surprising what we can't do after a procedure. Just because we are not bandaged or in a plaster cast or even in pain----doesn't mean we can stop being extremely careful--- I learnt today that I must not push myself too far--- I am not good at sitting around-- always active normally-- but if I want to return to that way of life I must be patient with myself and realise there is a lot of healing to go on internally! Think I need to write myself a note lol!
