I finally have me some nips!!! Woooohoooo! Everything went well today. I got taken back to pre-op at 645, had to pee in a cup (oh joy), do a CHG bath, put on my purple sumo gown, answer some questions and sign some papers. They started my IV, and the transporter came to get me and take it over.
Nothing better than a purple paper sumo gown that blows up with hot air when you are cold. Seriously! The procedure took ably 1.5 hours, went to PACU, was there for ~25 mins then went to ambulatory. I wasn’t having much pain but they wanted to give me a Percocet for the ride home so I ate some peanut butter crackers and a ginger ale. Soon I was ready to go, got dressed and out I went. All before 1300!!!!! AWESOME! Everyone was so nice, fortunately I had a lot of the same nurses and transporters so they recognized me from the last time. It couldn’t have gone any better!! I have posted a pic of what the reconstruction looks like on my pics page! They did an awesome job. Never in a million years would I have thought they would look so good! He must of had to really manipulate my lat flap because I am sore on the outside and I am a bit bruised, but only on the right…I go back in 2 weeks for a follow up, and then get my tattooing done in 3 or so months! Thanks for all of the messages, phone calls, and well wishes! I appreciate all of them!!!
