Today is Sunday, November 15, 2015 and I am now 4 days post-op from my procedure.
I have a bit more swelling in my face particularly in my eyes, but unless I point it out it’s not a big deal.
I had a small scare early on Sunday when I scratched part of my suture line and a small piece of suture wire came out. Dr. Huebner told me that in addition to the main suture line that keeps my head together, he used a bunch of smaller suture wires to ensure that the donor site was perfectly approximated and would properly heal so if a small additional piece of wire came out a few days later, it wouldn’t be a big deal. So although I had a small scare, I have nothing to worry about.
As more of the grafts begin to scab and crust off, I feel like I am turning the corner in my recovery.
Check back tomorrow for my Day 5 post-op post.
All my best,
