Recovery is a bitch.
I read a lot of accounts beforehand with people saying, “Take it easy–no, really!” but you don’t know until you know, right?
Overall, things have been progressing well. I’ve had 2 doctor’s appointments with the surgeon–the plastic surgeon, I am so LA–and he’s happy with how things look. I don’t see him again for a month. (Thankfully though, at my last appointment, he gave me the all clear to head down under in March so I can finally get serious about buying my ticket!)
I want to write a full proper post on the surgery (what made me do it, my experience finding a doctor, how quickly everything happened, before and after pics), but I am so tired. And achy. Though everyday has been better and I am ultimately (to this point, at least) happy that I went under the knife.
