Friday 28th May – 3 days post EarFold
Went back to work yesterday and everyone commented on my ears – I am wearing my hair up – YAY!
Left ear – tiny amount of bruising. Right ear, nearly black and quite swollen but strangely no pain, unless I touch them. They are looking good .
Today was my first hair wash. Plasters got slightly wet but they are still firmly on. No pain today. Bruising has gone down on both ears and you would believe me if I told you that I had not even had surgery as it looks completely normal. Right ear is still swollen but can see a change. It is the best it has looked and I have no pain at all.
Able to work for the entire working day with no pain and back on the phones.
Note – Apart from my first night after the op where I dosed up on painkillers during the night, I have only taken 1 lot of painkillers every day since the op and not felt it necessary to take anymore. This would not have been the case had I undergone a pinnaplasty or other procedure.
