Last night, I lifted my shirt, as one of the wounds was annoying me, and my daughter just said Wow Mum, you need to see a doctor. The top right hand wound was red, and raised up slightly. I squeezed very gently and green liquid wept from it. I cleaned and wiped the wound with Isopropyl Alcohol.
I phoned Chris who is in Sydney, and he said to call the hospital, who then called Prof. O'Brien who, then called me. So into Paul's Surgery I went this morning, he has checked the wound, and said everything will be fine, I did the right thing by wiping it with the alcohol wipe.
He also said I may as well have my first fill, as I was due next week. It went very smoothly, he had a little trouble finding the port, and just put in a longer needle. He has put in 1ml, taking the total to 4ml.
I want to do this slowly, it's a lifestyle change not a horse race. So I am glad he is taking my journey gently.
Also, they weighed me on their scales today, I have lost 6kgs ( 13.2 pounds) since May 10th. I am on the beginning of my 4th week today. I have to admit, that the weight loss is with no exercise whatsoever due to trouble with another one of my wounds.
I was very happy!
So on the drive home from the Surgery, I purchased an Elliptical trainer
I wonder what the next 4 weeks will have in store, with one fill, one on the way, and more exercise?
I fly Interstate on business for 4 days from tomorrow, so I apologise in advance if my posts are thin on the ground.
Have a great day!
