I survived! I am okay!
I don’t know if it’s because I had a better surgeon or a less-serious issue or I was more prepared, but I rocked assurgery #2.
Maybe if I hadn’t had assurgery #1, aka the most painful experience ever, I would complain more, but compared to that, this recovery is not bad at all.
I’m sore and I’m tender, but I can walk and sit without pain. I am not setting my alarm for the middle of the night to take painkillers, for fear of waking up in agony.
Thank you for kind thoughts and words via the interwebz. I appreciate it. I was really scared, and knowing I had people BEHIND ME helped lift my spirits.
To end, I beseech you all to take care of your asses. I have no primer for how to prevent ass issues, but… here goes a few tips. Try to be gentle with your ass, and avoid foods that irritate it. Use wet wipes that don’t contain alcohol. Take sitz baths if your ass hurts. Take a great probiotic daily (I take VSL3). Drink lots of water. Maybe get a footrest to put near your toilet.
My ass is completely deformed now, but if Hustler contacts me, I’ll just make sure they can photoshop.
