Surgery went okay, there was a snafu with the check-in. I left the house before 6:30 am. Got there by 8:05 but they didn’t know I was there and I didn’t get called back until almost 11.
They asked me what happened.. I was like you tell me, I’ve been here since 8. She said they didn’t get my check-in until 10:45. They didn’t want to delay anymore so they wouldn’t give me anything for nerves. Even though by the time I was numb from the shots the nerve meds would have kicked in. They were done with the cutting part by 11:30… and I was on my way home about 1 pm.
Numbing stuff wore off about 2 or so… things started hurting. They didn’t give me anything for pain. (booooo hisss) They couldn’t really put stitches in because of the concave shape of the curve of my eye. No glue because it was too close to my eye… it’s left open. Keep the area moisturized to keep it from scabbing over and stiffening up or interfering with movement AKA blinking and eye stuff.
Can’t see for crap, because I can’t put my glasses on. It is swollen and bruising and I have a pressure bandage on it until tomorrow. I can’t bend over for a week, no heavy lifting or exercise that may cause my face to get red. (that’s just about anything right now *snert*)
They covered a lot of post-op wound care but didn’t cover what to do if I need to sneeze… I guess that’ll be a fun mystery to get to the bottom of. My depth perception is pretty hit and miss. Balance is off a bit and I can’t see anything on my right side.
Pictures to be uploaded eventually.
