I'm not real sure the size of the incision. The bandages go from the tailbone to the bottom of the shoulder blades. I get to take those off tomorrow and have real shower instead of a sink bath. When they removed the drain tube, he lied and said it wouldn't hurt....it hurt pretty bad, but know I can lean back with less pain. It still hurts, but not as bad.
The pain in the thigh/leg etc...is because of the nerve that was being affected by the initial issue. I pray it's not going to be an ongoing issue now that they waited more than a year. Permanent nerve damage can happen in 3 to 6 months...but they thought that wasn't going to be an issue...I hope they were right.
