Public Service Announcement
This is a PSA: Apparently you can be allergic to the surgical glue dermabond, and when you are... it looks like this:
I think this picture is upside down
I normally would not post such pictures of my lard, but seriously.... seriously! I have been popping 2 benedryl every 2-3 hours because it just itches that bad! There are two more incisions that look like this but those are near my lady bits and I believe it is illegal to post in 29 of 50 states. I'll spare you the details.
Today I had what was supposed to be my check up from surgery, this was with my real doctor.... whew. She took one look at it and said this is a severe allergic reaction to dermabond glue. Last time you had this surgery we didn't use this. I can tell because we didn't use it on you belly button, and you don't have a reaction there. She said that I likely have a secondary infection because everything is so inflamed and nasty (paraphrased).
She gave me steroids and said this should clear things up. Crisis averted. I can not wait for this to kick in. Oh my God... please stop this itching!
Surgery summary: she's really glad we did the surgery because the pathology came back and I did have polyps in my ute. At the time of surgery, she couldn't really see. So this makes me feel better.
The old ute is fresh and clean. We scheduled the next cycle. Meds start 11/11... and so here we go... on to the next one.
