Hey everybody, I just got home from the hospital today! Everything went really well on tuesday, they had to replace more of my artery than they thought they had to but it's all fixed. I finally have a pulse in my hand and my fingers are no longer white. Of course being in the hospital sucked but thankfully it was only 2 nights and now I'm back home to relax and recover. It's 6 full weeks until I'm 100% but I'll probably be more mobile sometime soon. Im suprised I could even rise my arm up that much.
They took the vein out of my leg to put it in my arm, so I have 3 3cm incisions on my inner thigh (no pictures yet, it's an awkward area to photograph haha) and the 25 cm (10 inch) incision pictured below. It's actually a lot less painful than my last 2 surgeries because they didn't cut through the muscle in my arm for this one. Unfortunatly I'm stuck in pajama pants for a few weeks because of my leg wounds. But I'll still try to update, I have a few photos from earlier this month I saved!
I look forward to seeing everyone's updates and commenting soon :)
