Dr. visit. Dec 14, 2016. Week 7 Day 44

It is hard to believe that I am starting week 7.   I saw Dr. Habash this morning and he said everything looked good and my wound is healing.  Slower than he would like but still progressing.  He is a perfectionist and is already talking about stage 2 and how he is going to make my new girls even better.  I like them now and I am sure I will like them even more when he is finished.

I have a FUPA (fat under pubic area), I know I laughed when he said that is what it is.  He will use that fat to contour my breasts during Stage 2 reconstruction.  I had to look it up when I got home.  That is exactly what it is called.  So funny.  I really like Dr. Habash.  Very good at his profession and I am pleased that he wants my new girls to be perfect.  He is going to do the areola tattooing in Jan and Stage 2 about 3 months after that.  Letting my wound completely heal and be stable for another procedure.

I did a little more research on wound care and at lot of Dr’s recommend Aloe on wounds so I mixed Aloe with my other cream and we will see if it helps it.

10pm.  My wound already looks better since this morning.  I do not know if it is the Aloe or the removed stitch.  Maybe both.

I am posting the wound pictures so people can see that they do heal and to please have patience with the healing process.  Most people do not get wounds like this.  I just happen to be one of the “Lucky” ones.   Have a good night.

Pictures from the morning and evening are below.  Hopefully one day soon the pictures will not be so graphic.
