A month has passed ...

A whole month has passed since Horace's operation, and I can't believe how far he's come and how well he's doing.

He's off all pain medication except four hourly paracetomol and Endep (an antidepressant) at night to relieve muscle pain. And it's muscle pain that's now bothering Horace the most, especially around his scarring. We've started massaging that spot three times a day for ten minutes at a time, and it's making a huge difference. His left side is now almost completely relaxed and will probably be cleared up in a few more days. But the other side is proving more difficult, and it will probably be a week or so before that's all cleared up. At least though it's not the hard knot it was when we started, and not as painful. Two good things.

So pleased to hear that Horace is doing really well. Have you thought of acupunture for the muscle pain?
