I know its only been a week but my bits are still so sore, I can hardly walk I had 10 stitches around the labia i think? at least thats what i remember them saying, tbh I don't even know, it doesn't say in my notes ?! Ibuprofen and paracetamol don't have any effect, it still stings when I go to toilet and is even worse if I go in the bath !! The swelling has gone down but I can't even sit on the sofa for more than a few minutes, it doesn't seem to be getting any better is this normal ? I feel awful, I get really tearful and im sure this is because as well as surviving on only a few hours im in so much pain and had mastitis which i also have antibiotics for. I am so, so tired but I just can't sleep in the day no matter how exhausted i am, its like i have insomnia. The days go so quick and i spend the whole day in pain and feeling totally out of it as im so tired and irritable.
