Chest at 27 Days Post-Op

Y’all are gonna get sick of these photos, but I’m going to keep posting them anyway! It’s a transition journal after all…

The healing is progressing well. The right side is now starting to come around, with the wound healing up and the swelling going down, slowly but surely. The shininess is from the Polysporin that I am applying daily. Not only is it an anti-bacterial, but it also helps soften and reduce scars.*

* UPDATE, May 2012: The verdict is out on Polysporin. See the note on Top 10 Chest Surgery Supplies.
