64 ?

64 - the number of clips/staples removed from the cut on my tummy. I have photos but I won’t post.

I'm home but i've been taking it easy.

Back to regular blogging after ANZAC Day.

    Hey Frank, 64, pretty good! Did they send you home with the staple remover? Or did you go to a doctor to get them out?

    I had a twisted bowel a couple of years ago.. Took me months to recover. I went into hosiptal with severe abdominal pain, I came out with 48 staples in my stomach. I can tell you when I woke up with staples in me, I was weirded out. The morphine was good though.

    They sent me home with the little plastic staple remover tool, removing the staples was a really cool way to gross friends out: "Hey check THIS out!"

    There were a few stubborn ones that I just couldn’t remove. I dug and hacked and gouged and they wouldn’t come out, got infected, and the doctor had to remove it.

    Get yourself some Vitamin E tablets, and eat a couple every day, and rub a couple into the wound/scar, it will help.

    I can barely see my scar now, and it used to be pretty impressive. Only scars I have seen that outdo it are of course open heart surgery, or a shark bite 🙂

    Get well soon, Frankie. Over here in S’pore, people usually make snakehead porridge (shock you didn’t I? Nah it’s actually a kinda fish) esp after an operation suppose to promote healing. Just an extra bit if you are bored.
