So here is the 6 week post-op recap….
Looks like everything is going very smoothly. The areas around my nipple grafts where I am having some drainage is completely normal. He said these areas are where the stitches under the surface are trying to poke through the surface. I should expect to have that happen until my scars settle down.
I talked to him about the difference between my breasts. He said it could be due to a variety of things, but all in all he thinks things are progressing well and he wants me to wait another 2 months to allow them to fully settle. We will re-evaluate then. So I have to go back in 2 months. My nipple scaring will have settled by then, my implants will be more settled, so we can talk about nipple reconstruction providing everything is to my liking.
He took a look at the scars on my back and thought they were looking a little bit better and didn’t want to do the steroid injections yet, if at all. Another thing we will re-evaluate in 2 months.
As for the muscle spasms, he said he expected them to increase because of the increase in my activity. For now, he wants to me to continue to do PT (yippee) . He thinks it will help with the spasms and take the Valium when I need it, hopefully getting to the point where I don’t need it at all.
Speaking of PT, I was supposed to see Richard per his request today, not sure what for, but at my last appointment he asked me to come early to meet with him. I ended up seeing Dr. Greaney first, then waited for an hour and twenty minutes to see Richard, but when they finally got his attention, he said he didn’t really need to see me, he wanted to see me in 2 months. Lol.
All in all a pretty good appointment.
After my appointment, I met up with Pinder and saw Noah. It was a very interesting interpretation of the biblical story, but entertaining none the less. We had heard the reviews before we went so we knew what we were up for. Apparently a lady that was in the theatre with us didn’t know that it wasn’t a direct representation of the biblical story and she let us know that she wasn’t happy about it while we were in the bathroom after the movie.
