Derek, how are you doing?

Thank you again for all the well wishes of speedy recovery and take care. I am doing fine. I eally appreciate the concern shown to me for the past few days from all you.

*muacks muacks*

Just a short update here on how I am doing.

Three days ago
I walked really slow, like an elderly gentleman. Pain was less than the day after the operation, but I was still on painkillers.

When I slept, I had to lie flat on my back. I couldn’t lie on my sides at all, without feeling discomfort.

When it came to getting out of bed, I had quite a difficult time too. I had to get into a sitting position first using my elbows, and then put my feet on the floor. This, in usual circumstances would be extremely easy, took more than ten seconds to accomplish.

No stretching for me after waking up. I can only swing my arms, slowly. Like I was doing tai chi.

I couldn’t wear tight fitting pants. A sarong would be an obvious choice, but I don’t have any. So I am wearing extremely loose pants.

Well, not that loose anyway, till it can come off easily with just a tug.

I walk at a faster pace now, perhaps 80% of my usual speed. I have stopped taking painkillers.

Though the pain in my right testicles is still excruciating at times. The pain comes and goes.

It usually comes when I am standing up or walking after sitting for a while. And then it goes away till I rest my butt on a seat again and get up.

I can sleep well now. Or at least, yesterday night. Nevertheless, I didn’t get much sleep the night before. This was due to the sharp ache in my balls almost the entire night.

Getting out of bed takes mere seconds. I can swing my arms now. And even squat a little to get the blood flowing in my legs.

So basically, I think I am recovering quite well. But of course, I will still be spending Christmas Eve at home.

To all my readers, I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas! Sha la la la ……

Told you it would take a week or two before you'll be functioning properly. The procedure might sound short and sweet but th recovery takes quite a while, kiddo. Any removable stitches?


Derek said...

keatix: Yes, thank you very much for your concern.

The answer is yes. It is functioning well. ;P

hoknotyalc: Happy holidays to you too, Clayton. Refer above for the answer you want. ;P

And yeah, I will get lots of rest. *hugs*

bitch: Thanks so much, bitch. Happy holidays to you as well.

savante: Nope, no removable stitches. I so wish that I would recover faster ... can't wait to go out ...
