Treatment Update

After a wait of nearly a week and a half, the surgical procedure has been scheduled. It will be performed a week from yesterday, next Wednesday afternoon. I'll be put fully under for 45 minutes to an hour, then drowsily and gingerly make my way home. The pain is supposed to be intense, so I'll be placed on Percocet almost immediately. I'm not necessarily looking forward to this, but I mainly just want to get the thing over and done.

The first two weeks will be the worst, after which point stitching will be removed. Total healing time will be 6-8 weeks in totality. I expect a lot of discomfort in sitting and wearing of sweatpants in place of actual trousers.
