Today was the day. As most people are, I was apprehensive and nervous going in. The facility is beautiful, clean, sterile looking. The assistant leads you into a room take to before photos. Then your brought to the room where the surgery is performed. I was prepared for a operating room table but was surprised by a chair more like in a dentist office. There was a big screen TV on the wall with the Today show on. I got comfortable in the chair with the pillow and blanket the nurse gave me. The doctor came in to say hi and the nurse gave me a cup with pills in it and before I knew it was done. I recommend having someone stay with you because there are pills and ointments and icing that needs to be done and your sort of out of it. I was lucky enough to have my daughter in law tend to me the whole first day. There isn't a lot of pain more like sore especially the incision. This was day one..
Swelling and cleopatra look but no pain at all. A little bruising. Frozen peas in individual baggies work best for swelling. And sleeping propped up also helps.
Turning yellow and purple and a little sore. But nothing like imagined, no pain, swelling starting to go down.
Bruising is pretty evident but swelling going down. Being in the house for 5 days now is a little tough and keep hoping this was worth it but I'm sure 3 months from now I will be overjoyed..
I can envision three months from now...
Still a bit sore on the outer edges of my eyes but am so pleased with the results thus far...
