Cleft Closure Recovery

I had my Cleft Closure done on Thursday last week. My drain was removed this morning but it still incredibly sore. They put stitching in last Thursday. Dissolvable stitching I believe. Anyone else has this procedure and how long did it take for the pain to start easing off? also how long was it before you went back to work? I’m due to go back next Monday so it gives me an extra week to take it easy

I had cleft closure surgery with Asha Senapati in Portsmouth, it took about 5 weeks until I was able to go back to work although I work in IT and sit constantly throughout the day. And also I had 2 previous surgeries so keep that in mind. Still experiencing dull pain after sitting for an hour plus, hopefully this gos away in time.

Use pico dressings they heal these wounds up well and fast don't get conned by surgeons and doctor's most surgeons I've seen don't have my best interests at heart all they care about is cutting you open than sending you off to gp nurse's surgeon who performs open surgery's with high failure rates get paid a lot.

Cleft lift is the ultimate option

I went back to work a week after my drain was removed. The only thing which was keeping it saw was the sticky plasters holding it all together. The second I took them off it was all fine
