"However..." I thought to myself, laughing at how the man might react if he knew.
[And yes, I am wearing jeans and a sweatshirt while flying. I've been traveling a lot, ok?]
While I have you...hi. I am doing pretty well. Six months after my surgery, I only have three real reminders of what I experienced.
Itchy, unscratchable scars. I read this article in the NY Times and nodded. It should have occurred to me that I would feel this way given that I previously had ankle surgery and many years later, I still have a pins and needles feeling along one toe. But it's weird how surgeons never mention this likelihood.
Annoying CT scans. I had one in January and my next one is in mid-April. The scan itself is easy and brief, but I dread drinking the gross barium 'milkshake' and the cumulative radiation exposure is scary.
Fatigue. Whoa. I need more sleep than I used to--and I have always been a sleeper. To be honest, I am tired all the time and it's a factor in my lack of recent blog posts. But the docs say this is normal so I sleep when I can.
Thanks for reading.
