But now I've had my operation and my scars funnily enough are first class, they've virtually faded. The surgeon how he did it I don't know, because when I was admitted to the local hospital, after I came out, the charge nurse and the doctor said, “I've never seen such a good cut. It really, really is a good one,” she says. And I agree, it's fading so good, I can't believe it. So I'm happy about that.
Did you put anything on it to help it? Has it just faded on it's own?
It just faded on it's own, I do nothing. This is one of the reasons I want to go abroad. I think a bit of sunshine would help it a little bit more and that's what it needs now is a bit of sunshine now, and I'm convinced that it'll be virtually undetectable, not completely. But there again, that's the penalty you've got to pay for having blocked arteries I suppose [laughs].
And your leg, sometimes the leg is more of a trouble than the chest, was that okay?
No, no problem at all. I did wear a stocking, a pair of tights for the first six weeks, day and night. I never took them off except to wash them and change them and it's healed up perfectly, beautiful. I'm really, really pleased with it. I'm very, very pleased with the surgeon, there's no two ways about it.
