So I had my surgery end of November to remove large tumour from my backside. I believe the operation was successful but feeling a bit frustrated that my bum is taking so long to heal. The wound in my bum has a whole in which I'm just starting to have packed every other day to speed up my recovery. Don't no what to do for the best. It's very painful to sit down. So I terms to avoid this but worried this may delay my recovery. Should I make more of an effort to sit and put up with the pain or try to keep of it hearing in mind operation was a month and a half ago and expected recovery time was three months. Maybe I'm being to impatient.
