Hello I wrote these nearly 2 weeks ago but they have got lost in other replies so I am re writing so everyone can see all my posts.
Day 2 after my surgery and no pain at all again, this has truly been a breeze I am so happy I do believe it may have worked too as I haven't had my stocking on since Tuesday, its Thursday now and although I am not walking around much I do believe it would have swelled more if I had been standing even this short time with no stocking, I really was so worried about this procedure but want to put anyones mind at ease, The surgeons all 3 Professor Furniss, Mr Ramsden and Mr Gore are just so down to earth and such lovely guys, I had a wonderful anaethetist called Mr Simon Rabbi, poor man fell off his bike on his way to work this morning but still he was so professional in his manner although I am sure in pain from his fall, I feel so happy not to be wearing my awful stocking which was my best friend but now I no longer want to be friends, fingers and toes crossed this has worked.
Day 3.....Today I have not needed paracetomal and feeling really good, the swelling has stayed at bay too, just a small amount on the inside of my ankle, and its only slight, the good test is pushing the thumb into your skin and before I had a definite dent ,that's gone now yippee, I really hope this is soon available on the NHS for people a lot worse off than I am with their Lymphoedema, it is amazing this can be done with great results here to the future for lymphoedema suffers.
Day 4.....I was sick this morning not sure if that is the after effects of the anaethetic or the anti biotics, what ever it was I felt better after, again no swelling maybe a bit but I have now got my leg higher than my heart, my best friend came to see me and told me off for not having it high enough. still feeling good and only 1 more day of antibiotics, had no infection so far touch wood, but I am taking the as they say without food,.getting bored now though Much love xxx
