THANK YOU all SO much for your kind wishes - it's like a great BIG hug LOL.
Thought I'd do a short update for you - good news & bad news still...........
Good news - original hole is sealed & all good but
Bad news - is still a small amount of fluid present which may still relate to original hole but may also be another so minute hole that it can't be visualised even with their super-magnification lenses. Consultant is prepared to wait till next Tues to see if the remaining fluid is resorbed or not - if not I'll be back in theatre on Friday of next week for another operation :(
At least the "stay at a 45-degree angle with head tilted to right" position at ALL times except bathroom breaks & food has been relaxed but eyesight is still crap so excuse the mistakes lol.
