'Bout how I feel.
Spent some time in urgent care yesterday, and at least got to see a real doctor. The good news is...wait for it...I don't have gangrene.
Yep, says so on the paperwork they gave me. I do have an incisional hernia.
It feels worse every day. Lots of stabbing pains. Hurts with every movement, including laughter, so I'm really screwed.
They told me to contact my original surgeon, who in turn is going to refer me to a surgeon who specializes in this kind of thing. It's been 8 years since the original surgeries, but evidently some of those thousands of permanent stitches they told me about decided they don't want to be permanent.
Now I'm waiting for a call back, and have no idea when they will get around to fixing me. As much as I'm hurting today, I really hope I don't have to wait until after the holidays.
