Healing nicely

Posted Nov 21 2008 3:02pm
4 more days! On Wednesday, I have a check up by my surgeon to check the incisions, the swelling, etc. The metallic taste is pretty much going away, the numbness is going away. My head is slightly itchy. I probably will use Aveeno body wash (I don't know if Aveeno shampoo exists) on the incision area since it's dry and slightly flaky.
It's not much of an update, but here's my spanky looking scar! Not bad looking eh? The surgeon used Cat Gut sutures (it's not really from a cat), I know because of my experience working in surgery at a veterinary hospital. There was about 1/3 inch sticking out at the bottom, and it drove me crazy for a couple weeks because I can feel it and I tend to play with it a little bit. See why I am glad I didn't get staples?! Finally, it fell off yesterday, so no more sutures sticking out!

That's about it folks...
