4 days post-op pictures. Yeah, I know, they're worse than the first surgery. I suspect that because the surgery took longer. EDIT: My doc told me that she used a different electrocautry, and it tend to cause a bit more bleeding. Oh well. No pain, no gain eh? But hey, I had no numbness in my mouth, I can open my mouth all the way (Last time, I could barely fit a heaping spoonful of food in my mouth), I have more neck movement. Since y'all love pictures...here we go. Here's me with my head wrap. Although I know people take them off within a couple days, but because I have such long hair, I was told that I need to keep it clean. Right now, I only wear the bandages while I'm sleeping.
My right hand where the catheter was inserted. Can't feel any pain. Just a nice lovely color.
