One incision approx. 4″ long. Internal sutures and external running suture.
After an exhausting day, I went to bed hoping for a good nights sleep. I thought if I just kept my leg flat with no movement I would be able to doze off. Boy, was I wrong! Leg flat, turned to the side, bent at the knee, knee on pillow…nothing worked. The incision would start to pull, then the pain would increase. A lot of tossing and turning for many hours. The more tired I became the more my leg hurt. When morning finally came and I decided to give up on sleeping. Walking slowly across my bedroom looking at Randy, first words out of my mouth, ” I am going to complain!”.
Today, dressing removed and wound cleaned. blood is still oozing from the center of the cut. I applied another pressure dressing and will reevaluate later today!
