Saturday night was pretty uncomfortable. I took the pain meds too late in the evening and my head was really hurting. It sometimes takes about 45 minutes to an hour for the meds to "kick in" and begin to ease the pain. It was a difficult night but I got through it.
Took it easy all day Sunday and Michele washed my head. It didn't hurt a bit but she is a hair dresser and is very skilled at doing a good job without causing any stress to the affected area. My face is pretty "puffy" but Dr. Vories said to expect that for a few days.
The pain meds last about 4 hours or so. Sometimes I take some Ibuprofen instead if its not hurting too bad. I hate to take heavy pain killers if I don't have to. Took a few pictures but the lighting is not good. I'm setting up a better photo studio in my office.
