What was I saying earlier about things progressing nicely?
Had my final follow-up appointment with Serge this morning.
In recent days a couple of issues have developed which I was keen to ask about. As I was describing them Serge became progressively more concerned – evidenced by the furrowing of the brow and “hmmmmm”(s). Upon examination his concern did not lessen, after some more “hmmmmmmm”(ing) and brow-furrowing, he suggested my symptoms could be bruising from the op, in which case symptoms were a good sign or could be an infection – which would be Very Bad.
And so, I must carefully monitor self and have a follow-up visit in a few weeks.
And I must take it easy. This presents no problem as all I feel like doing is sleeping (with breaks for complaining and occasional reading).

This does mean that I will need to have another week away from SaltMinesLimited, the fast recovery I had anticipated (delusional, much?) being not entirely forthcoming.
Which goes to show that there are upsides to everything.
