    I couldn't help saying that. I split my skirt once at a school dance. Or more accurately, going to the house for the after-dance party, where we were all going to watch football. I was running, jumped the curb, and heard/felt...RIP. I had to hold that skirt shut for the rest of the night! :cardie:

    It was, a little. Luckily, I think someone at the home we went to had safety pins, so I was able to pin my skirt and finish watching the football game, which for me was more important than the dance...I'd spent half the dance with a group of guys gathered around a miniature TV. (The technology for THAT has come along big time. These days, I guess it would be somebody's iPad!)

    May you find blissful sleep with the noise gone. May the progress last a long time with no troubles again.

    Now I've got that song running through my head, too. :rommie:

    I should've known better than to post that. The second time was not the charm. Vac is back on. [Insert the profanity of your choice.]

    It's definitely sounding like they need to find a more effective technique than this. :(

    Are there any clinical trials, by any chance, that have progressed sufficiently to where they're now likely to yield better results?

    ^ Not that I know of. Good thought, though.

    Last time I saw the plastic surgeon, she said she wasn't going to get too concerned unless I developed a bunch more tunnels. Like ten or so. So far this is one more. And the home health nurse said it isn't that unusual for them to have a patient on a vac for a year or longer.

    :sigh:

    Just wondering...that would take some careful research, of course. But who knows...

    Yeah, I've done some research. Not sure I'd call it "careful." ;)

    Sigh. :sigh: Sorry to hear that. Do they give any reason why this keeps happening?

    ^ Nope, not really. I can't begin to tell you how monotonous this is getting. :sigh::sigh::sigh:

    Not a big deal, not really worth posting, but I need all the good news and pats on the back I can get. Ten months after the surgery...

    (1) I am finally not anemic. Yes, I could've sped that process up considerably, but I was experiencing an unpleasant side effect from the iron supplement, and it was dose-dependent, so I wasn't willing to take the higher dose that my doc recommended.

    (2) In the TMI category... You know I had months of total urinary retention followed by months of partial incontinence. Well, I'm finally functioning well enough during the day that I can wear real underwear. I'm a big girl now! :alienblush:
