    Scar Tissue tore a little

    Well, after being in a car for 14 hrs yesterday sitting, I guess I found out this morning that it was a little too much for me. I've been closed up completely for about a month now and this morning I woke to a little tiny tear in the scar tissue. My wife looked at it and said she can see the...

    Healed and Released!!!!

    As of May 12th I am officially released by my surgeon. I have been healed for about 6 weeks but he wanted to make sure the scar tissue didnt cause me any problems. There is light at the end of the tunnel people, but please do your research and find the RIGHT surgeon for you.

    Removing Hair after healing

    Just wondering for those who have been healed for a while, or just got healed. What products work best for you to keep the area hair free. I want to be able to find something that I can use myself. I do not want my wife to have to shave my butt for the rest of my life. I can get the general...

    Had Surgery and Feeling..........

    Went to the doctor today. He said everything is looking great and that I wont need to see him again for 2 weeks. My wife also watched how he packed me. She thought the opening was deeper than it actually was, so she was packing me too tight, which is probably the reason why I've been...

    Had Surgery and Feeling..........

    The Saline did help more tonight when having my packing changed. I jumped in the shower before my wife removed the last bit of the packing, it hurt a little, but not too bad. After getting out of the shower, my wife dampened the gauze with the saline. It felt better, the moistness felt better in...

    Had Surgery and Feeling..........

    I guess the honeymoon part of my surgery is over.....I've been in alot of pain this evening. It actually hurt when the packing was taken out tonight and that was even after taking pain medication. I guess I need to get some Saline and start soaking the packing now. The pain was so bad it...

    Had Surgery and Feeling..........

    My wife changed my packing this morning and still no real pain. Packing came out pretty easy, bloody but easy. When she did pack it, I could tell that when she pushed the packing in that my tail bone was a little sore, nothing I cant handle. I've started taking the vitamins that Sasha...

    Had Surgery and Feeling..........

    Thanks all, I think I got a good surgeon too. Yeah my wife was fine as soon as she saw me after surgery. Linda, he said there was only one tunnel that went straight down my midline and it actually opened up the two sinuses. I woke up this morning with my entire body aching. Still no pain...

    Had Surgery and Feeling..........

    Linda.... I dont know what they used. All I know is when I got in the operating room they game me some medicine through my IV and I pretty much instantly noticed something. I didnt even realize he gave me anything. Right before he put the mask on me to breath into, he told me that he was going...

    Had Surgery and Feeling..........

    GREAT!!!!!!!!!! I got home about 2:30 today. Surgery itself took about 10-15 minutes. Took me a while to wake up though, I woke up with some double vision so I was in recovery a little longer than expected. My surgeon talked to me, but I was a bit out of it. I go and see him on Tuesday for...
