|After op, trying to eat a meal, wife's there with camera.|
It's also nice not to be wearing the dressing anymore. Though the bandage came off the day after the operation the ear had dressing on which my wife would replace when required. Unfortunately she would get a little carried away with the adhesive tape. Just a good job the duct tape was hidden away.
The only downside is that I can't do any running for a while. I need to ensure that not only does the ear dqrum properly heal but that the piston does not slip until it's fully integrated. So I'm going to be off running for about six weeks and no martial arts for a few months (the consultant was keen for me to avoid being punched in the head for a while). So I'm hoping to be running again by December and probably have to leave my martial arts till next year. It'll be tough as I'm already itching to do something - oh well perhaps an enforced lay off is a good thing for the body. Especially as I'll be training for the Milton Keynes marathon in May next year.
