Scary right? In July, I had a cleft lift, but it was on open wound surgery, which I know has a huge re-occurrence rate. I have an appointment on Wednesday, but I'm super, super scared. I try to do research, but I can't seem to find anything that makes sense. If this is a re-occurrence, what other surgeries are my options and how will this affect my life? That last one isn't really a research question. If you've had the same surgery as I and the re-occurrence , how did it affect your everyday life?
