I'm heading out in a bit for my post-op exam. Things are healing nicely, though my navel still has what looks like a very large yellowish/green key shape around it! The other incisions have just about lost all their surgical glue, they itch a bit and are still tender, and there's a lump under each, which leads me to suspect internal sutures. But I'm back into my routine and feeling fairly normal when I bend over to tie shoes, pick up stuff, etc. I'm going to try to start walking my hills again and see if I can at least hold steady over the holidays and then maybe, slowly shed some more weight. And the best part is NO MORE EXCRUCIATING PAIN out of the blue!
