Yes, I can definitely see a tiny difference between a few days ago and today's pictures. The swelling is slowly starting to come down! I am so happy.
A few days ago (first pic), vs today (second pic):
Also, my last Vicodin was at 2 am. I am allowed to go 6 hrs between doses but typically am waiting for the last hour or so to come around so I can pop the next one because of the pain...well it is 11 am here and I am ok, just starting to feel some aching coming on so I took two extra strength Tylenols and am going to see if that is enough for a while. If not I will take another Vicodin, I want to see if I am able to start weaning off them every 6 hrs, but am scared of the pain coming back full force. Hopefully this is the start of an upswing!
