9 days post op and I definitely feel like I have 'turned a corner'. I was back to see Merv today. He was very pleased with how the wound was healing. He took some blood and as an added bonus the stitches came out as well....1 week earlier than planned!. I am now definitely starting to feel that the long awaited run I am so keen to do is getting close now...may even beat that 13th August target, you never know!
