This is my second day of recovery and I am doing quite well. Well enough that I can review the surgery with a keen eye.
First; It is a little unnerving to look at this 6 inch long incision closed by super glue! No stitches, no staples, no butterflies! Not even a bandade! Just a ⅛ inch wide strip of glue very close to part of my body few people have seen! I hope it holds.
Second; I had to WALK into the operating room! That was a first. A rotator cuff surgery, two other hernias, and colon surgery, and I never had to walk to the surgery room! I guess that is a budget saving move.
Third; The pharmacy delivered the take home drugs to us before we left the hospital! Now that is customer service.
Fourth; I am still numb in the area close to the incision! Inside is a little painful, but the outside, where the glue is, is numb!
This has been a good experience but I plan on making it my last planned surgery! I will evaluate emergencies as they happen but I am done doing this if there is a choice!
I still have a sense or humor.
