    Update day 5:

    Pain in still at 0-1, which is managed by Paracetamol 1000mg every 5 hours. I still am taking codeine at night.
    Sleep is just amazing! Did 9 hours last night, so fully back on track which is making a world of difference!
    Still napping and resting in the day too though.

    That damn rash is still there and spreading!! now completely around my groin area, and under and above wound plaster. I've taken @leejaa advice and sent the OH to the shop to get some antihistamines so I'm taking one every 4 hours now. Doctors on Monday if it's not clearing up!

    I'd been having showers since day 2 and now I'm at home. Although I feel steady, I'm just making OH be around in the bedroom just in case for a few more days.

    So overall, nothing really to report now. After 5 days pain has steadied and is manageable on just paracetamol mostly. I am hoping this will be it now and daily i just work on pottering around the house, increasing walks (I may attempt a walk outside down our little cul de sac next week!), keep resting lots and getting more into a daily routine.
    I think I'll stop posting daily now as the major events have been and gone (hopefully!) and stick to a weekly update which will hopefully be of use to some.
    Looking forward to hearing updates from those February Valentines hippies! Take care all x
