The plastic surgeon did a procedure to remove the stuff from the incision, so now I have a small hole that I have to pack with gauze strips. He numbed it even though there is no feeling there, but later at night when I had to change it, boy, did it sting. Right now it itches and stings at the same time. He told me it's OK to get wet, which I find strange, but he's the expert. He told me to put antibiotic ointment on it to keep it moist. He doesn't want it scabbing over. Oh, he also found a suture there that he removed. He said it might have been irritating it. I hope it gets better soon. The skin pain is getting just a little better.
I can go back to work in 2 weeks. What work, I'm not sure. I hope it will be the same place, but it's all up in the air now. Wish me luck!
