Final visit

I have just come back from my final post-op visit with Dr F. He says everything is looking good: swelling is going down and there is no fluid build-up that requires draining. The bruising that ran from my sternum to my armpits is a faint yellow discolouration, and my ribs have stopped hurting.

The only thing still an issue is when I put my arms in the air for a stretch. I feel things inside go 'gritch' and a pulling sensation. So I don't do that. It's probably scar tissue.

And my nipple look like they're inside out, but that's scar tissue again. He could fix that but it's purely cosmetic. I shall maintain my perfectly normal exterior with hidden weirdnesses.

Dr F went through the pathology with me. The only things they found were mammery duct ectasia (right) and some fibroadenoma (left), which are why he went in there in the first place. Everything else was normal for manboobs.

So that's it. No more doctor visits unless something goes wrong. Which is nice.
