Not for the squeemish: Post surgical incisions

If you’re viewing this post from my blog’s home page, you’ll have to click the continuation link to view the photo. It’s a little bit gross.

If you click the photo, you will be taken to my flickr page where you can zoom in a bit. The photo was taken about 20 hours after my surgery. Dr. Klingler ripped the packing material he left in the incisions out without warning, leaving me no time to get dramatic about how much it was going to hurt.

I admit it. I screamed.

I’m feeling woozy as I type this. A little nauseous, pretty shaky. The combination of adrenalin, pain, and Percocet has me well below 100 percent. As I type this, I’m getting worn out, and thinking about a nap. Good news: will be discharged after a tetanus shot. Get to sleep in my own bed tonight.
