2 week follow-up appointment

March 28th, 2008 No comments

Had my 2 week follow-up appointment with my surgeon in Englewood, NJ. A set of x-rays were taken, which were unremarkable. Next the 59 staples in my leg were removed and replaced by steri-strips. It feels great to have them out.

Finally, my doctor came in and did a quick assessment of the incisions and of the leg. He said other than the pink area at the top of the hip incision, things looked great. He gave me a new antibiotic prescription, and after a 5-minute conversation about narcotic addictions, wrote me another prescription for Percocet. I see him again in 6 weeks.

New scar

My new scar

I took the dressing off my incision today. This scar is a little better than the last one, but still not as gross as I’d hoped. Check out the high resolution version.
