Not feeling so great after the surgery, not gonna lie. Despite that I've had less bruising and swelling in comparison to the other people who went into surgery with me, I spent the past three days trying to decide if I regret undergoing this operation. It's painful, and if anyone tells you otherwise, they are a liar.
I'm currently in this studio apartment in Mok-dong, trying not to concentrate on watching the swelling go down. I've been obsessively documenting my progress on Photobooth. (Still trying to decide if these photos will ever see the light of day because they're really embarrassing. I took my first shower today since the op. I think that should say enough.)
I'm going back to the hospital tomorrow morning to refit my mouth with the bite wafer because it keeps moving whenever I try to cough out phlegm. Sexy.
I don't know when I'm going to be able to go out and about in public again. Those days seem very far away, indeed.
