Ok, this blog may be a big gruesome, but I suspect there are people out there that want to know when the incisions are like. So I'm surprising myself by posting a pic of my belly right after surgery, and another more recent one.
The first picture was taken a few days post-op, at home. I had no bandages or stitches to worry about. There was a clear coating over the incisions. They fell off on their own, one at a time.
I wasn't allowed to wash my belly for several days, and I really wanted the adhesive off, but I was happy enough not touching the incisions.
Please note that I was not in any pain. As the incisions healed, they started to itch a bit, but it wasn't bad.
I'd had my gall bladder out many years ago, and had similar incisions. But that time they had stitches that needed to be removed. I didn't enjoy that, so I was very glad to skip that step this time around.
That rounded rectangular spot on the top right was the cell phone's shadow.
I had to bend backwards a bit for the send pic to avoid getting the shadow.
