Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

SO glad you're home and on the mend! This time, for real!

So far, does this seem like a much smoother process than the last time?

So far so good, but it's way too soon to know for sure.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Sorry this is sort of old, but I didn't want to start a whole new thread.

The surgery went so smoothly. Plastic surgeon said he'd found a real mess inside. I had apparently produced way too much scar tissue, which meant that I wasn't getting enough circulation in those areas, and so on. He took the more conservative of two possible approaches to the surgery. He was pretty confident that that approach would do the trick, but, if it didn't, we'd have to go for the more radical version, which would mean a longer, more difficult recovery.

Well, for five weeks, everything went smoothly. Perfectly. Now I've had a setback, and I'm terrified that when I see him on Thursday he's going to say that it's not working and we have to go to plan B.

Today is 18 months since the original surgery. Does this shit ever end?

It will end. It just doesn't seem like it right now because you've been through the ringer again and again. Things will get better. I'll be hoping for the best. Being ill is so draining. Good luck to you.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Thanks, gentlemen! Dorian, you're right, being ill is draining. (So is my wound. hehe) Though the irony is that I actually feel good. I'm bored and restless and ready to move on with life!

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Keep going, Ziyal. I'm glad to hear you're anxious to move on with life - it sounds like you're doing well, even if you're body isn't quite ready to fully cooperate yet. But it will, and as always I wish you luck in the coming months.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

I'm at least glad to hear you're feeling better than you were after your last surgery.

Do you feel good that this guy knows what he's doing?

Very sorry to hear about the setback but I'm sure your docs are doing everything they can, TZ. Here's to some good news.

Go to Camden Yards and you'll feel better.
