Wound improvement. Dec 17, 2016. Week 7 Day 47

I am going to post below yesterday’s wound picture and tonights.  I see a great improvement.   Excited.  Hopefully the top wound will get the hint and get rolling on improvement also.  It dropped from a high of 71 today to 23 right now.  No more T Shirts for this woman.

I haven’t talked about range of motion.  I have been working on my arms and now I can reach up and back about 4 inches.  Much improvement there also.  That is the most restriction I have in my shoulder arm movement.  I have no problem laying flat and even arching my back some.  The tummy incision is tight but stretches.  I have about 6 inches in the center of the incision that I can still feel bumps and knots.  I have been massaging it every night and it seems to help it.

The only soreness I have in my breasts is at the sides.  The swelling has not gone down much and it is very tender.  No pain otherwise in my breasts.  I do get a sharp pain every once in awhile, which I understand to be nerves connecting back.  As for the lack of feeling in my breast I am glad since I have that wound.  It if hurt it would be harder to take this slow healing.

Well off to sleep.

Pictures are below.

Looks better.  The marks on the right are from the non stick pad and the pressure of my bra.  You can see from the outside red circle how big the wound actually was to start.
