hey guys! so i had a follow-up visit today with dr. sillins and she was able to take off most of my bandages, and i got 3 of my 5 drains taken out! needless to say, i am more comfortable now. we also measured my belly incision and it is 19 inches long!! and that’s not even counting the four other incisions on my chest! i’m just an ugly mess of stitches and super glue right now, so i’m looking forward to the days when i’m all healed up. it’s hard to have your belly stretched so much that that you can’t lay flat, and have to walk hunched over, but i’m getting straighter every day, so that’s good. :)
