My bruising is pretty bad. It’s sliding down my chest. Check it out (day 4, if you were wondering):
But on the other hand, I feel almost normal. I am having very little pain. What I’m mostly experiencing is a mild burning feeling around my incision. That sounds scary, but it doesn’t feel or look inflamed.
My energy is still not all there. If I get up and “do” for a few minutes, I will start to feel just a little bit clammy and woozy. That’s my cue to resume my station on the couch. But I am doing more today than I did yesterday. And I expect to be doing even more tomorrow. It looks to me like that one-week recovery I keep seeing quoted everywhere may be right on for me.
