The little pinprick holes where the stitches are sewn are oozing pus, it makes me freakishly happy.
My arm is sometimes very achy, but I'm already used to it. Besides I have lots of pain killers.
I cannot bend or stretch my arm, but I think that after a few months of exercising and normal life I can use it like before.
I can't lift practically anything from my pair of boots to my Optimus Prime backpack, or carry a shopping bag.
I will have the stitches removed at the end of April.
I don't wear the sling, despite being told I should wear it for three weeks after the surgery. But it bothers my housework and general life.
My arm is a bit stiff, I hold it in a crooked way, but it will be better.
I can write and wash the dishes and do other important things.
Probably the only difficulty is grooming; I have to use my left hand when lathering my hair with shampoo, and spreading lotion with my right hand is painful.
