Microbiology

I went to the doctor's today.  This is me.  I was 161.6 this morning.  Hard to tell what that means post surgery, but seems right for how I have been eating.  This shirt dress is something I measure my size/shape by and it fit just fine.  I bought it at a local thrift store.  It's Ralph Lauren, cotton with the teensiest bit of stretch and the best part about it... the size tag has been removed.



So as I thought, fungus.  Sigh.  He said sun would take care of it?  Okay, I'll sit in the sun tomorrow-- should be lovely out.

Other things to do include wash 2x a day, air dry, apply anti-fungal, air dry and then put on compression garment.  Also switch back to the one that came from hospital so I can keep an eye on it.  The other is comfy, but it promotes moisture and that's the last thing I need to be doing.  You can see the worst of it, plus the scar and bruising down my right thigh  after the jump.  The left is more is unhappy.

Ow! I know it was on purpose, but sometimes you forget that surgery is really trauma to the body.

Best wishes for continued healing.

You look pretty! The leg actually looks quite good too, especially this soon post-op. Hope you can get some sunshine and fresh air soon--those often do wonders for the healing process.

Wow! That's some intense bruising!

I hope you heal up nice and quick - it's good to see how small(ish) the actualy incision looks to be - means once the bruising goes away, the scar won't be very noticible.

There is more to the incision. About 6 inches more that wraps around the crease in my groin. But yeah, surgeon did great job to minimize the impact of scar.
