The pain in the throat is definitely less. I will start to think about reducing my painkillers this week coming. I have started eating real food…admittedly whizzed up but at least that is progress. I have managed to eat a casserole, soup, milkshake and even some tinned pears. Looking forward to a poached egg or two today.
Just feeling a bit more with it is ace. I need to start some physiotherapy now. I have lost a lot of weight quickly and much of this is muscle mass around the arms, shoulders and legs. I have to start walking and going out to build myself up for a return to work in the future. Tiredness is an issue…I can make it until about 5pm before I need a snooze. Night time is difficult with phlegm and getting to sleep. At least when I do sleep it is quite restful.
I feel so great when I look back at where I was. I will take nothing for granted but pleasing progress.
