After just over three weeks since Nataleigh’s surgery, I must say she is doing phenomenal. As she laid down for bed last night, she informed me that she had just gone through her first 24 hour period without any Tylenol or ibuprofen. That is just incredible in my opinion.
The mesh and Dermabond which lay on top of her incision is still very much in place. However, it has begun lifting at the edges and more rapidly at the base. I trimmed some of it away two days ago and it revealed a very nicely healing scar.
Nataleigh no longer asks for assistance with getting up or down and has asked us to make a doctor’s appointment for her to get clearance for returning to school. That shows how well she is doing. At this point, I think we just have to be cautious of her lifting limits and let her continue to heal.
