*hugs* Glad to see you're home! You quite certainly have had some ups and downs! But hopefully you'll have lots of ups from this point on Your "saga days" are useful! I think it'd be terribly inaccurate to document your recovery as "perfectly fine" and lack of detail wouldn't be very helpful to others. I can't really relate since i'm sans cleft lift at the moment, but I wonder if those pains/stinging along your incision are a product of nerves regrowing? I could be wrong but, as Jaredsmom said you might experience some numbness -- so maybe that's your body's version of the same thing.
