My appointment with Dr Schroder was really helpful, as always.
Tomorrow I'll have an ultrasound to rule out any blood clot that might be causing the crazy swelling. That seems like a prudent course of action.
It took awhile to update Dr S with all the new developments and then decide what to do.
When the appointment was basically over, I asked Dr S, "Would you like like to see my incision?"
Lou exclaimed, "Of course not!"
But Dr S said that he certainly would.
I knew he would. Professional curiosity. Plus, he's my PCP and really ought to see it.
I just moved my clothes out of the way and leaned over the exam table so both Dr S and Lou could get a good look.
He was surprised at how long it was, and Lou got him to measure it. It's 12.5 inches. Wow.
He said that it is a very neat incision, and that it is healing very nicely. Good to know. It has been Patsy's job to inspect it at home.
