    Thanks, Everyone. :)

    Nerys Ghemor, if you're in a state that licenses massage therapists, the licensing board is who they're accountable to. All the ones I've been to have all been very careful about modesty. Standard procedure is to keep the client covered by a sheet or blanket, except for whichever body part they're working on at the moment. As far as the health concern, if I were in your position, I would just tell the therapist about my wonky back. Most massage techniques are gentle and unlikely to cause problems. The only reason I was concerned this time was that my body is obviously still healing from all the surgery.

    Actually, on the first visit they will usually ask you to fill out a form that asks questions like that, and they will also ask directly before beginning.

    When I had my second surgery after a tendeon injury, I got massages starting on the second day after the surgery. I was really surprised that you could do that with the stutures still in and the wound being so fresh but it healed so perfectly that I can only recommend it. It makes the scar stay small and soft and prevents scar tissue from growing too much.

    I keep my fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you, Ziyal :) and congrats on your impending promotion! (only 18 posts to go) :)

    He did, he did! Now I just need that last tiny bit of wound (where the drain had been) to finish healing. I think I'm finally getting somewhere!

    YAY!!! :)

    Once this part of the wound has healed, does that mean you'll be done?

    ^Good-bye and good riddance! To the sutures and anything else more complicated than a plain old dry dressing. :D

    Yup. :D

    (I seem to be full of toothy grins this morning. Just imagine how thrilled I'm going to be when they finally discharge me from from the plastic surgeon and home health care! :D)

    It's very good indeed to hear that things are going well. :) I hope the rest of the journey (short as it now seems, thank goodness!) goes smoothly. As ever, your cheer and grace is rather inspirational.

    Thanks, folks. I have to admit, I haven't been very cheery in real life lately, but yesterday definitely perked me up.
