The bandages came off last Wednesday, and the stitches were removed as well. Healing seems to be coming quite rapidly now, with range of motion improving daily, and muscle soreness decreasing.
Most of the bruising has gone away, and the incision is starting to flatten. There’s still some numbness around it however, and I was told in pre-op that this should improve, but probably won’t go away totally. I’m having some issues with the sensitive new skin being irritated by shirts and collars, but it’s nothing that repositioning can’t fix. Next doctors appointment is scheduled for December 18th, where I should be given the green light to ride outside again.
