Wife drove me to my surgeon's office this morning. We were in and out of there in 15 minutes or less. Rather disturbed, it was like he got his money (operation) and that's was that. He took out the staples, painless for once. Checked my right side groin area closely for signs of hernias, didn't find any. Had no opinion or advice about deep pain on right side. Been hurting acutely since the day I got home from hospital last Monday.
Said he was done with me, good luck, you know the routine. Told him I still hadn't had a solid movement since prior to surgery - no answer. No change in appetite - no answer. Gave me the standard answer - well, you have been through so much down there, with the radiation damage and multiple surgeries - tough luck, got to live with it.
Funny though, prior to surgery, acting like he really cared, had me fooled. Ended up being another notch in his surgical belt. Interesting, his nurse was still really concerned about the ongoing pain issues, but not the doctor himself.
Only time will tell, if this major operation really accomplished anything or not. Meanwhile, I am still in the slow recovery mode. I am allowed to drive again (did so locally, felt weird after 2 weeks), and 20 lb. weight limit for the next month.
Kind of feel I am right back to where I started.
