Well, I made it through my 5th surgery with relative ease. Dr. Plastic did a lovely job (I think, because I won’t look at it yet) and was even so kind as to remove the drain before I left post-op.
They tweaked my anesthesia this time and loaded me with anti-nausea drugs so I would have an easier time coming out of it then I did in the past. They probably tweaked it a little too much since I kind of woke-up in the operating room before they took the tube out (ick). They seemed a little surprised to see me open my eyes so soon.
So I am home, recovering and doing nothing for 2 weeks like Dr. Plastic made me promise. This morning it feels s little like an 18 wheeler was driven over my chest, but I have some nice pain-meds that should keep it bearable. This time around I will take my meds and sit around….I promise.
