Day 8 After Surgery
Tuesday, March 26, 2013
I went for my 2nd post-op doctor's visit this morning. He removed the two drains and all but two staples. There were a lot of staples! Almost each one was like getting a bee sting. My nephew said that was how his staples being removed felt and I do agree with him. Especially my left inner thigh. That was so touchy! He swiped the area and then put body glue on me. That always makes me smile. I have used super glue on cracks on my fingers but I just never thought they would use it to hold me together! Unreal! So the doc is happy with how I am doing and reminded me that I have just had major surgery and need to keep that in mind and take it easy. My body needs to heal.
I was on my team Plastic surgery after major weight loss and on the general team discussion forum Lisa Haupert has a thread and in her introduction she has a link to her youtube videos. I watched three of them with interest and if anyone is really interested in having this surgery done they should check it out. Here is the link:
