I think it’s safe to say that I just had the worst week of the year. And I hope that it’s really over now.
I went for my operation last Wednesday and was discharged the next day. Although the operation was a success, my disease is still not completely cured and the postoperative pain started to kick-in two days after the operation.
This operation is called a functional endoscopic sinus surgery – one of the most common types of surgery for chronic sinus disease. It’s performed using a small endoscope inserted through the nostrils. It’s minimally invasive, which means that it is done without an open incision. So, I can expect a speedy recovery after the operation.
Prior to the operation, I was a bit frightened when I learnt that the most serious risks associated with this surgery are brain damage and blindness, albeit very rare. I tried my best to stop negative thoughts from popping up in my head. Despite his busy work schedule, V went to numerous temples to pray for my safety.
During this low period of my life, V has been extra patient and caring to me. He bought presents to cheer me up. He takes care of all the house chores so that I have ample rest. He waited outside the operating theatre and he assured me countless times that he will not leave until I’m safely pushed out from the OT.
I’m so lucky to have a fantastic hubby like him… and family members who are so concerned about me. Thank you everyone for your well wishes and prayers. I’m feeling much better today and will resume work this Thursday.
