So here's my after staples pictures. I had four staples on the top of my arm. No biggy.
And 21 staples underneath. It's nasty looking. I've been putting Lavender Oil on it as suggested by a friend. Any other great home remedies that you have please share.
I had a little hot flash at church this morning and took off my jacket and sweater when we first arrived ( I had a t-shirt on underneath). I didn't think about it at all but there were 3 little kids behind us with their family and every time I stood and folded my hands or stuck my hand in my back pocket the kids had a perfect view of my scar. I think I freaked them out a little. Finally I put my sweater back on and I stopped scaring little children.
The whole surgery and healing has not been that bad at all. On a day to day basis I had more pain before the surgery than after. So I guess you would call that a success. The nerve pain I suffered with for almost three years is gone!!! That is a blessing from God.
