Day 10: THE DRAIN IS OUT!!!!! Words cannot express how happy I am right now!! I could barely feel it, and it looked like a little beige straw, maybe about 4-5" long. She even took out 3 of my top stitches. I still have to take it easy, sitting as it feels comfortable, but I can sit so much more comfortably now that the stupid thing is out!! I do still need to stick gauze in there to catch any drainage coming out but I don't mind the gauze. I have another appointment next Tuesday, my goal is to be able to fully sit down and rest for at least 5 minutes. I am able to sit leaning forward, and then I only have to use my arms for balance. In the car I had some trouble on the way there and it was not good (bumped it while I was getting in and almost cried) but on the way back there was only minor discomfort. I didn't drive though because I had taken a lortab just in case. Good thing I didn't, because I was rather dopey and kept mixing up rights and lefts....I DO know my directions lol. She said everything looked good, there was no sign of infection, just keep doing what I was doing which is a whole lot of laying around. I got the little write up thing, and the official size of my "specimen" (cysty stuff) was 7.5" long, 4.5" deep and 3.86cm wide. That little sucker was deep. The cyst itself was .6cm, and it says the skin ellipse is 6.7" long and 1.3 cm wide. I *think* the 6.7" is how long the actual cleft lift was, like the actual skin shift? Idk I'm just speculating, mostly typing because I'm too excited not to. THE DRAIN IS OUT!!!!
