Re: Surgery with Dr. Waner and TLC filming the surgery
The laser surgery on Tuesday went as well as can be expected. I'm still a little sore today, but nothing I can't deal with.
Here's a brief recap:
Emula was applied at 10:30. The actual surgery on my back started a little after noon. The entire procedure took less than a half an hour. Total laser pulses approx. 700 (which is average for me) I think Dr. Wirth told me* the laser beam was set on level 5. All things considered the area reacted pretty well and I've dealt with worst pain before so I was relieved. After my initial visits I had an antibacterial soothing cream applied after treatments but I think it only causes a mess thus I've declined the cream my last few appointments. To tell you the truth, the cream doesn't make any difference for me. However, I'd recommend that other patients use it (error on the side of caution.) I did take 1000 mg of Tylenol at night to make sleeping a little more "comfortable" although comfort was still very hard to find. If I didn't have to work this would be a breeze, but showering is cumbersome (ouch!)
If anyone has any questions, let me know, I'll be happy to answer. Although everyone is in good hands w/ Hank and Missy here.
Have a great day!
