Wound is all healed. Jan 17, 2017. Week 12 Day 78

All of my wounds are all healed.  I have been in Florida visiting my daughter and I have not been able to post.  It is nice to not have the twice a day routine to care for my wounds.   I have an appt. today to be released for work.  It will be nice to get back to work.  I have missed it.  I find out today when I get my 3D tattoos and when exactly stage 2 will take place.  I will post pictures tonight.

I am released to go back to work or at least take my physical and lift the required 55 lbs in order to go back to work.  So excited.  I do not think that I will be a good retired person.  I did not like staying at home.  I missed working.  Maybe being healthy and able to do things when I retire will make it better.  Well I have 5 more years to think about retiring so things could change.  Dr Habash would still like to do a stage 2 revision this summer.  I will point out on one of the photos below the things he would like to do to make the new girls look better, my stomach also.

I get my 3D tattoos on Feb 15 and I am looking forward to it so they will actually look like breasts.  The feel of them is unbelievable.  I can not tell the difference at all between the original and the new ones.  Of course the new ones are smaller and with the stage 2 revision they will be smaller on the sides also.  My stomach will be lipo-suctioned so my stomach will be more uniform.  My small FUPA will also be gone.  I wish I had known about this gene years ago and I would have had this done at a younger age.

So excited to be heading to the last leg of this journey.  It has all been worth it, even the wound care.  I think about the wound and why it happened.  I hope because I have blogged about it, other people going through it can realize that it is only a temporary set back on the road to recovery.

I am posting the wound care photos at the end, in the date order from my last post, to show the progress of healing.

I will not be posting until the day before the tattoos, Feb. 15, 2017,  There should not be any changes between now and then.

Have a great day and if there are any comments please post them.

The 2nd stage procedure on my breasts will be the removal of the side fat on both breasts and a small uplift on both, which will remove the scar from the wounds and also make them more rounded.
