I am feeling much better than after the maze procedure; the bruising is quite extensive, but not particularly painful. I am very tired, so decided to take the next week off work; the was pre-agreed with my manager, so not a problem. My sick note runs out tomorrow, but cannot get an appointment with the Doctor until the 16th, but I am assured there will be no issue with backdating it. I explain that this will be OK, but I have an appointment at the Northern General Hospital between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. I am told this will be taken into consideration and will be allocated a phone appointment in the afternoon. I checked later; the appointment is for 10:55 a.m.
Apologies to the sensitive for the picture of my thigh below.
I have similar but lighter bruising on the left leg and another on my right wrist from the blood pressure sensor.
