I now have a new countdown on my page. 21 days until my surgery for getting my expanders put back in. YAY! That is Friday, January 27st. I thought I'd have to wait atleast a few weeks longer, but this is just in 3 weeks! The appointment today with the plastic surgeon went well obviously.. He said I looked healthy and he checked things out and said considering what we've gone through things look really good and he didn't see a reason why we couldn't go ahead with surgery as soon as I wanted and we could get it scheduled! They even offered me January 13th which is only a week from tomorrow! But the surgeon then pointed out that it is Friday the 13th and he's superstitious so he'd prefer not to do that day (he may have been joking) but that was a little too soon anyway! I have to get things prepared at work and we have a big "thing" going on in 2 weeks, so I need to stay atleast through that. It won't be too bad this time since it won't be nearly as long of a leave.
He said I'd have the drains again for about a week (bleh) and then at some point... maybe a couple weeks (?) we'll start doing the fills and fill for about 6 weeks, then they'll need to sit for a few months. He's not going to have me take any antibiotics preemptively. He was saying there some merrit in doing a long course of a particular antibiotic followed by a sulfa antibiotic, but we can't do that because I'm allergic to the sulfa. But he doesn't think at this point that we really need to do anything differently than he would with someone without history.
This was good news. I'm excited to get on to the next step towards being done with all this! And I'll have boobs!!
Yay I'm so happy for you! And you'll be going for surgery before me :) Glad we're both on the fast track to recovery!ReplyDelete
Ok so I read that as Janary 21st :) So I'll be going for surgery 3 days before you. But YAY for you anyway! Getting the expanders replaced is an easy peasy surgery.ReplyDelete
