Finally good news from the surgeon!

I had my follow up appointment with my surgeon today after my surgeries for the abscess last month and I really went in there thinking I would need more surgery for it. To my surprise she said it looks amazing and she is surprised with how well it's healing.

It is still healing, and I still have the space missing where they cut me but the tissue is growing back and she said it's at the point where I don't even need to have it packed anymore.

I needed news like this! It's such a relief

Thanks! It felt so nice to tell my nurses I dont have to see them anymore. They're such a pain in the ass.
