Hi everyone. Its been an interesting week on the forums hasn't it!! My turn is coming soon. My rib resection is booked for Tuesday the 24th April and it has come to a point where I am looking forward to it for some relief.
The second time in the same place for me, I was well armed with the thoughts and suggestions from everone here and was able to present to the surgeon knowing that I knew a lot more than last time. So, I got more information in return but interestingly, he asked for the names of these forums for his other patients, because I had told him how much support you find here.
If any one is interested, I have posted some images in an album in my profile of my first surgery. The images show exactly where the first surgery was. I'm told I will get a Y shaped incision under my right clavicle this time around, from my sternum, and then back.
So, if you like unusual pictures, everyone is welcome to have a look in the album in my profile.
