So far so good!

The operation was a complete success according to the surgeon. Longer than planned for at 5 hours on the table, but the results are looking good so far.
Pain is much less than I was expecting, and I’m already up and about, walking around the ward. Still very encumbered by lines and drains and monitors, but I’ll steadily lose those over the next few days.
Next major milestone will be Tuesday when the surgeon is planning to put me through a load of radiological tests to determine if he needs to do anything extra now, or if the drainage is good enough for me to be allowed to heal up as I am.
Fingers crossed for a good outcome on that!
