I'm not as squeamish as I thought.

Friday, January 21, 2011

I had a tummy tuck in early September and had my "final" exam 8 weeks later the surgeon noticed an anomaly at the right end of the scar he wanted to correct. (He is a perfectionist.) By this time we were close to the holidays so I opted to wait until after the New Year. By this time I thought the flap was almost gone and decided to have him check it before having further surgery. He indicated it had indeed changed, but he still thought he could make it look better and that it was a minor procedure and would cost me nothing. So I decided to go ahead. What he explained it that sometimes the drainage tube leaves a little "bubble" under the skin and the scar doesn't lie flat.
It turns out it was minor and very quick. I reclined in a special chair, only took off my trousers, got a couple Novocain shots I hardly felt. I thought I would watch the whole thing and then decided not. Halfway through I couldn't help, I had to see what was going on. I got to see him put in 4 of the 5 stitches and it was really cool. He said I could do anything today so 6 hours later I taught a yoga class and tomorrow I'm going to a 2 hr. master yoga class in a nearby city.

    (Just dropping in quickly with a 5 minute internet window and saw your blog:-D)

    The Dr who did the hook-wire set-up for my breast lump actually felt quite "off" because I INSISTED on watching him make the incision and put the needles and wired into my boob. He kept insisted I look at the posters until I told him I wasn't going to and in fact LIKED blood and guts, which is probably why I joined St. John's.

    I find it interesting and look at it as tho' my body belongs to someone else :-)
