Follow-up With My Surgeon

Mood: Good 😁

I had another follow-up appointment with my surgeon yesterday and I realized that it has already been a month since I had my surgery. It seems like time is flying by, but that is not a bad thing at all.

He took a look at my incisions, said that everything looks great and that I have healed well. I asked him if he could take out my sutures as one of them had been hurting me to the point of needing pain pills after the steri-strips came off over the weekend. So after taking another look he said that he could take them out. I am sore now that they are out and I will be for a few more days, but I am much more comfortable now.

We talked about the pain that has developed on the side of my left breast and he is not sure of the cause. This is an area that we have talked about before because I noticed it after my first surgery and it bothered me as the bulge in the area is noticeable, to me anyway, and it has never gone back to normal size. He actually pointed out the area to me when we were talking in pre-op before my last surgery, and he said that he couldn’t do anything about it that day, but we could look at it later on if it was still an issue. At that point it wasn’t causing me any discomfort or pain so we moved on to the details of the surgery on that day.

What do you think?
