I hope I am not turning into the Question Lady, but I have some questions. First, what are you doing with your incision after the dressing comes off? My scar is right where everything hits it--shirts, pants, undies. I have been taping a piece of padding over it to keep things from rubbing on the incision scar. But the tape itches like crazy. What are you all doing?
The second question I have involves the anethesiologist. He asked me before the surgery if I had any dental plates. I am still curious as to why he asked that and what exactly was involved in the anethesia process. I woke up from the surgery with a sore on the inside of mouth and my voice was horse. What is the process exactly for anethesia?
Bonus question! I have my post-op (L5, S1 Microdiscectomy) appointment with my NS on Thursday... What all will that entail?
