I've also decided to stop taking codiene/tramadol for the time being, because I think the pain is at a stage where it's bearable when I'm only having paracetamol, and codiene/tramadol was making me feel incredibly sick and also making me hallucinate which was quite frightening. When I closed my eyes I thought there were people around me and touching me, but I opened my eyes and there was no one there! I think I'll only take that if I'm desperate now.
I have to say, that this is the hardest thing I have ever been through in my entire life, and I think I underestimated what it would be like before going into it. Last night I was feeling quite regretful, but now I feel more positive and I feel like I can handle it again:)
My profile is so different!!
Some bruises have come up today under my eye and on my left jaw.
That little mark on my forehead is from where the surgeon put a pin in the operation! He said it was so there was something steady to measure how far he was moving everything.
