A post-surgery update...

All in all, I'm doing OK. The surgical pain is very manageable now that I'm on the Percocet, and the incision looks great. I see my surgeon tomorrow for a follow-up; he'll take out about half the staples.
The itch of healing is what's driving me nuts!! And my massive bruising is turning that lovely yellow/green shade!
I am having a few minor problems, somewhat related to the surgery, that I'll be talking with him about tomorrow. One is no big deal; the other may require minor surgery to fix.

Sitting upright is still a bit uncomfortable, but I've been able to do a few crafty things (some card-making)

I hope you're taking pics of those bruises to scrap!

Glad to here you're healing - you're in my thoughts and I hope that there is no further surgery/complication required. I hear ya on the scratching!! I have been known to sleep with socks taped on my hands when I have bad eczema, so I can only imagine!

Glad it all went well! Take care of yourself and remember everything you tell us Ms. Nurse! ;)
