I can't quite believe it's 2 weeks tomorrow since my surgery...& I'm STILL in hospital bar Sun & Mon in the comfort of my own home/bed etc I've been here!
Maybe I tempted fate as I felt so good following the op. I was convinced I'd have a textbook recovery. However I've now learnt that because he had to take so much of my diaphragm away, I suffered from symptoms of that & pleural effusion. They drained about 650/750ml of fluid.
Ended up in a fair bit of pain after drainage, had another difficult night, so medication was switched again & we're currently hoping they've found the right balance so I can actually go home Monday.
Everyone says this is a tough journey, had no idea just how much stamina I'd need to get through. I still have to face more chemo too shortly, so know I'm gonna have to dig very deep!
Just the reminder from these photos tells me, just how up & down the journey is!!! x
