    Here's the incision on the day after my surgery.

    Here it is now, about 3 weeks post op. Healing pretty good, although it's going to leave a pretty good size scar from the look of it. The incision is about 10 inches in length. It really amazes me how the body heals itself after such trauma!

    13 days post RTHR. Can't see much of the scar because of the padding.
