9/29 – 2 weeks after the operation and I feel so much better. My boobs are not spurting hot milk all the time, and although I still have ice packs on them, I am not doing the cabbage all the time.
We sort of took over the pool at the Sofitel for the day. Moved all the chairs and the shade, blew up our floaties and camped out for a few hours. The barman agreed to put my spare ice packs in the bar freezer, so I could still swamp them out (stuffed down my swimsuit) to cure the boob inferno. I didn’t bother with the cabbage for the day, although I am still bleeding and wearing pads.
