Went in to see the surgeon today, a week after I got out of the hospital. The last few days have been generally tolerable. The exception has been the drain. Or more specifically the anchor bandage for the drain. It was a bit loose and causing some problems depending on how I moved.

In any case, the surgeon did the usual poking and prodding. Then came the good stuff. The staples were removed!

As for the drain... it was quite deep in, so we decided it can't come out all at once. The bag was removed (small mercy!), the tubing cut, and pulled part way out (and secured with a retainer so it can't slide inside). The rest should come out on Friday or Monday. There's also a chance it will work itself out, but I'm not holding my breath. The sensation the tubing is causing now is subtly different. I can probably work with it.

The downside is that as the tube is still in place, the fourfoot is still barred from the bedroom.

And I have some more time to consider future directions and the like. It's progress
