For those of you who know, I had my resection/fistula repair on Friday, and I came home this morning! Wow, it has been such a smooth and fast recovery so far. I really did not expect it to be going so well, from past experiences.  Tomorrow I get my wound VAC set up (I have an open wound) which is a little bit depressing, but I just have to look at it in the long run and how much faster it will help heal me!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving this Thursday, I'm so glad I am able to be home for it!

Welcome home and welcome back. Hope you heal up fast and no more unwanted holes..

Yeah home for Turkey Day! Glad to hear you are doing ok and all went well. If you remember I see your same surgeon next Friday. I got my pre appointment surgery packet in the mail -- kind of makes it more real.

Speedy recovery!!
