Fairwind, I asked about
your surgery on the other thread and I am glad you followed through and are now on the other side!
My husband's sutures were also sealed up with some kind of waterproof "glue". Aren't most? That use of a small pillow was an excellent idea. My husband has used it many times.
Wishing you a complete recovery and good results on the pathology report. Take your time with the walking great distance, rest, eat properly, and all the other things already mentioned. Glad you came back to share details. Good luck to you!
