Sorry wd40 that your DaVinci didn't go as planned. That's a bummer to wake up with 5 holes AND a long incision to boot. That no doubt will take additional time to heal inside and out. I don't have the answer for you as to how long you'll still be tender, we're only 2 weeks post-op. And he's still very sore inside. I tried to find something soft for him to sit on at his desk when he returns to work later this week. No luck.. so I bought a memory foam twin mattress cover, luckily on sale. I'm going to cut it into chair sized pieces and cover them with a pillow case. I'll let you know how it works. It's on my to-do list for today!
Glad your test results were good! Fantastic news!
