Yep, I had the surgery done March 4th. The P/S used a skin graft procedure that still looks a little knarly, but looks better everyday. He advised that it would take about 6 months before it was completely healed. I also had to have the permanent implant exhanged and that needs to settle down some too. All in all it was a very easy procedure all by itself. I did have a problem with being put under though. Too many liquids were given during surgery and I suffered some mild congestive heart failure and had to stay in the hospital 2.5 days more than planned. It was suppose to be an in and out, but my lungs didn't want to cooperate. But that is all behind me now and I am doing fine. You would do great. But take your time making the decision. There is no hurry.
Sorry about your scare and so sorry about your DH's reaction. He is a dear man and loves you very much. My heart hurts for the men when they feel helpless.
Tell him my DH and I can't wait to see some more roundhouses with you both.
Love and hugs,
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
