Surgical operation finished..

So.. last friday I had an operation done on my left earleaf.. because it kept getting infected for some reason.

At first I was supposed to go to TAYS for the operation, but apparently there had been an error (human or other) with the reservation of the operating room. I ended up having to go to Valkeakoski for the operation.

The operation itself was over in about 30 minutes. Fortunately they did not make me sleep during it.

Funny thing, in my opinion, was that there was no interview with the surgeon regarding the sick-leave required to have it heal enough for me to get back to work.. they just wrote 2 days (friday and saturday) and told me to go to my doctor paid by my employer on monday.

So, I ended up taking painkillers for the weekend (Panacod & 800mg Burana) along with antibiotics (Kefexin).

Monday I headed out to Mehiläinen (which is the healthcare paid by my employer) to see the doctor. He noticed slight bleeding from the wound and gave me 2 days of sick-leave..

Today, I'm back at work, still eating antibiotics and painkillers, but had to skip out on Panacod because of work. I had to take a bit more of Burana to compensate.
Obviously it still hurts like a b***h, but I also noticed slight bleeding this morning.

But hey, the doc knows best, eh?
Can't be bothered to go back the for this..
Hopefully it'll heal. Stitches get taken out this friday.
