The past few days haven’t been very exciting, and what’s the point of telling the world that belly button is doing this that or the other.
I had my 2 week post-op appointment on Wednesday and was given the all clear to work on removing my steri-strips and to continue with the betadine as needed. I have all of my strips off now except for the one over my drain scar. The nurse glued the wound and then put the steri-strip on, so it’s still pretty well glued on. it is loosening up a little bit, so hopefully I’ll have it off before too long. My belly button is still unhappy, but it is leaking less and healing up as well as I suppose it can. I tape a piece of gauze over it so that my clothes don’t rub on it too much, but hopefully it will heal up a bit more so I can just let everything breathe. It oozes a tiny bit, but it’s not so bad. I think the steri-strips were more of an irritant than an aid over the past few days.
So this is the end of my ‘recovery’ updates unless something really goes crazy. . . hopefully not!!
To celebrate this, I am watching White Christmas and working on the hat I am knitting for my dad. Fun times!!
