Wednesday 17th September 2014, Beachmere.
Over a full week has now passed since the operation and how things have changed. The past two days have been the big difference in my recovery as I have now gone to being almost totally pain free and not taking any pain killers. What a difference in the way I am currently feeling after somewhat wishing I had never gone through with the procedure, although it really did have to be done. I will have to really keep my mind about myself for a while though, as I am now feeling that well that I am constantly forgetting that I have another four odd weeks without any hard lifting or work during my recovery period. I have even resumed my voluntary work at the museum today and yesterday, and considering I have only a few weeks left before we head south again I do not intend undertaking anything large or heavy anyway.
