Mood: Apprehensive 😕
As usual with my appointments with my surgeon, everything went well today. I am healing well and although I have a few spots that are irritated and leaking a little bit of yellow gunk, it is not serious enough to prevent me from starting radiation treatment. Yay!!
He said that the irritation is coming from a few sutures that are not absorbing, nor releasing out of my body. In a few weeks or so, they will most likely drop out on their own. All of my other sutures are being absorbed as they should so that is good news.
I am going back to see him in another two months for another follow-up to check and make sure that the sutures have either been absorbed or dropped by then and to also check on how everything is looking. Most if not all of the swelling should be gone and my skin should be more evened out where he cut me.
