Second surgery…

Filed under: Uncategorized — dreams at 8:23 pm on Thursday, March 11, 2010

So I had my second surgery yesterday morning.  Apparently there was an internal stitch that may have been causing the irritation.  There was no infection- so they were able to clean it up and close it up.  Now it’s a waiting game…stitches out on the 25th, and hopefully I’ll be able to celebrate Easter in the hot tub!!!

Oh…just an addition…my surgeon recommended I stay away from NSAIDS (Ibuprofen etc) because it could inhibit wound healing. I’m okay with Tylenol, but had never heard this before…interesting at the very least.

That’s what I’ve always heard about NSAIDs, too — until my recent oral surgery, where my Doc was pushing me to take ibuprofen to control the swelling. His instructions also said to avoid ice after the first day, because it retards healing(!). Everybody’s got a theory. . .

All the best with the healing!
