Welcome to the other side. and Healing Well. Remember, in most cases, time heals all wounds. Give yourself a couple to 4 weeks to heal and let the swelling subside for a clearer picture of your results..

Hi Mac User

You will get over the drip dripping soon. Give everything time to heal. The main thing is that the beastie is out. Walk around in moderation which is supposed to speed up recovery.
