I saw the plastic surgeon on Tuesday and he aspirated fluid that had built up around the surgery site. I can now take a deep breath without pain. He told me to do no activity at all. The more activity, the more fluid build up.
I have been feeling wiped out ever since. Pete and I got home and I went to bed. I could finally lay flat and rest without pain. I have been sleeping (or trying to sleep) in a recliner which I don’t do all that well with.
I will see the doctor again next week, but if I get more build up again, which it sort of feels like it is, I may need to go in sooner to have him aspirate the fluid again. He said the last resort would be to go back into surgery, remove the implant and clean it up, but he didn’t recommend it. I don’t want to do that either.
So I have been trying to do nothing, and have been letting my clients know that I am not well at the moment. I have had to turn work away and even cancel a couple already set up jobs.
Everyone has been very understanding which helps. I do hope I heal quickly. I am so tired of feeling ill. I still fight trying to keep my temperature down. It wants to spike from time to time again. I have people praying for me everywhere. It really helps to know that others are holding me up. God is my strength and provider. So I need to just rest and really do nothing.
