Day 22: Nothing much different. I'm super not stoked about this lack of sleep. Last night I was up until 4:30am. Needless to say, I had a small nap, maybe an hour or so, this afternoon. It was glorious and much needed. Other than that, simply just did the usual: CPM, exercises x2, bike-40 min, circumduction. Nothing too exciting.
Day 23: Got my sutures out. Oh, it is so nice to have them babies gone. They were certainly thrown tightly! I loved that the knots went under the skin! They had to dig them out. This happened the last time I had surgery with Dr. P as well. I suppose the fellow really likes tight sutures. I got all four stitches out. I called them my belly buttons as, they were puckered up and then dipped in where they caught the skin laterally. I am happy to get rid of my 'belly buttons'. One more thing about the sutures, I am also happy that Dr. P used the same scope sites as last time. Yay for no more additional scars!! 13 is enough. And I'll be getting more in September.
