    Booked in now I’ll be getting 250CC unders. I’ve got two weeks off and then it’s back to uni and work ( office job) . Do you think I’ll be able to drive about 25 minute journeys by then ? What’s the recovery like I’m very small size 4 in clothes, worried I’ll be unbearable pain for a while.

    Hi I had 300cc unders and wear size 6-8. I am 12 days post op and drove today a little bit. It can be still a little tender when trying to turn the wheel I felt like my stitches where pulling but everyone is different. I will be totally honest with you the first 3 days were the worst for me I cried every day I was in that much pain I couldn’t flush the toilet, pull my trousers up or even move my arms for that matter, but once I got onto day 4&5 I was moving about going out and felt much better in myself. Now I am literally doing most of the stuff I done before (in moderation) no heavy lifting, exercising etc. There is light at the end of tunnel which I longed to see at the beginning, it’s defo worth it though !
    Good luck xx

    Oh dear! I’m glad you’re feeling better … did they give you anything stronger to take the edge off. I think ill prepare for the worst and anything less than that will be a bonus

    I was just given paracetamol to take. I did go out and buy some codiene on day 2 but that didn’t take any edge of either so went back to the paracetamol. I also was expecting the worst but I think I was still surprised on how much pain I was in and the fact I couldn’t do anything. I am soo glad I got it done now though and it’s 100% worth it xx
