Thanks so much for the support, it means a lot... sorry i was just feeling a bit sorry for myself the other day!!!
Nonya, thanks so much for your kind words. As soon as the stitches come out am gonna start using bio-oil to help with the healing... would start now, but i have been told to keep it permently covered apart from when changing the dressings.
Paul is great and does give me a lot of massages... in fact i get one most days if i ask for one. He is the biggest sweetie!!!
Don't worry about your long post! It was lovely to hear from you and as i said your words meant a lot to me. so thank you for taking the time to reply to me!!!
Paw- don't be sorry about what you told me... it actually really helped and made me greatful that i still have the stitches in (well a mix of that and nonyas comment)
Donna- I made sure i saw the nurse i saw as i know she has been great with me in the past... she doesn't really know about EDS, but she does listen. She is probably one of the only nurses at the surgery that i would trust though!
About footwear, i bought a pair of flip flops yesterday as the ones i have are on there last legs. The problem is i can't wear my splints in shoes that dont have a back to them, and the cut is on the worst of the 2 legs. I had no choice but to buy them yest as i was looking after my nephew and his mum told me that i HAD to go out with him.
This has lead to a lot of pain, and still really hurts now... but hey ho.
As many people know i am not the best at pacing/resting/being patient waiting for things to heal (if i was then i would never be able to do anything) and it may be that that isn't helping. But the nurse said that i was allowed to walk on it as normal and it wouldn't affect its healing.
Though am gonna be a good girl today, and apart from some housework i am going to rest as much as possible.
Good news is though that it looks like it is almost there on the healing front...
for anyone that is interested i will attach some photos.
thanks once again...
take care, lots of love and gentle hugs!!!
