And here are today's pics (day 2 post-op) ... as you can see, I have LOTS of swelling. I have been keeping ice on my face at all times. I'm not sure if it is helping at all, but it feels good to have it on. After today I will switch to moist heat.
In the next one, I am trying to smile ...
And lastly, my side profile;
Do any of you remember the movie "Pure Luck" with Martin Short? That's who I feel like I look like right now, after he got stung by the bee and had an alergic reaction! I am going to make an appointment for MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage) for Saturday to see if that helps reduce some of the swelling. In a little while my mom and I will go for a walk ... it will be good to get outside and enjoy the fresh air a bit.
I am sorry if I have a lot of typos in my post-op posts ... looking around I can see fine, but I am seeing double when I look at my computer so I can't really tell if I make any errors when I am writing. I am guessing it is the oxycodone that is making my reading vision blurred.
