Ah, the stitches came out today. I have a fresh set of steri-strips in place, but after I let them “cure” for 24 hours, I won’t have to cover my shoulder when I’m in the shower or deal with any more [cumbersome, bulky, uncomfortable, yukky, stupid] dressings.
I can’t remember the last time I had stitches. The last several procedures have required staples. The medical assistant that removed them was terrific getting them out — or Dr. Burkhead was amazing putting them in. I didn’t feel a thing.
I go back in two weeks for my follow-up visit with the doc. Hopefully then I can ditch my sling and start back on Enbrel.
Things are good here. Hope things are good with you as well. Thanks for checking in.
