Here I am 2 days after my surgery. It was not
that bad after all. I got out of the hospital the night of my surgery (same day). Pretty fast here in Canada.
That's how it is with the Québec health system. The hospitals are full so they don't want to keep you for too long.
They send you home as fast as they can.
The first day I was in a lot of pain. I felt
like a bus ran over my back. Now it's better, but the skin hurts quite a lot. I can't move very fast and the new
scar has to heal for 10 days.
I have muscle pain, too because they had to move some
soft tissue to remove the metal pieces. It feels like I have bruises all over my back. I don't know yet when
I will be able to start training on the ice, but it's going better than I was expecting. Let's hope for the best and
say I will get on the ice in 2 to 3 weeks.
Bye for now,
Thanks to everyone who sent me some cards and good
words (and good vibes)
