Yesterday, Day 21, I finally peeled off the dressing and had my first look (via a photo, no mirror handy) at the incision. What a beautiful fine line! I can see that when it heals fully it will be perfectly acceptable in a bikini, it will scarcely be visible at all among all the surrounding wobbly cellulite and wrinkly flab on the rest of leg, other leg, tummy etc. I shall post a photo on the scar thread once I’ve got the pic small enough. I have to say, I was amazed when I found Bonesmart at how young my fellow hippies are. I thought I was young for a THR at 64. And then I was amazed all over again at what pert bottoms are displayed on the scar thread. Well I shall rebalance that! I seem to have very little bruising, which matches what I felt. The incision area generally is a bit numb, I guess the nerves take time to knit together. There is a bit of swelling; H who has a clearer view says it has reduced a lot over the 3 weeks. When I sit down it isn’t sore, but it feels like I am sitting on something in my pocket.
