My doctor was highly recommended and I had the procedure done pain-free and under local anesthesia only. Very weird to feel them retract after the incision by the tugging sensation but to not actually feel anything they were doing! I was in and out of the operating area in about 15 minutes and 10 minutes after that my mother and I were out the door and off to breakfast and shopping.
Yes, we went shopping at Mayfair Mall which was just across the street on Black Friday. I don't say we got a lot accomplished though except for hitting the Apple store when there was no line and finally getting her upgraded to a smartphone. I crashed at the end of the long day and slept for 12 hours, however post surgery pain has been easily managed by ibuprofen - the Tylenol 3 they prescribed seemed to be fairly useless.
|Day 5 - free at last!|
Surgery was on Friday morning and now on Tuesday morning the bandage is off and here I sit typing at my normal speed with both hands. Not everything is that easy, I tried to put a sweater on a hangar and whatever movement I made the pain was shocking though brief. So, still some healing to do and I will ease into it. For the most part though everything is Tickety-Boo.
I also got the tree decorated yesterday much to the delight of our young cats. Totally Disco!
