I'm back from the city and the operation! Everything went well (so they tell me). The 4 hour operation took 7 hours required 16 staples and 1 stitch plus a drain tube. (Told you it could be gross!) Anyway, I'm back at home walking around and generally doing well. I hope to get back out with the camera this weekend
Unfortunately, they did not give me back the lost height, but I can live being shorter. For all you gals that have had an epi, my sympathies. Does a tear in the nerve sheaf ever cause a headache!
