Finally home from today’s trip to Froedtert. I am in a lot of pain and really overwhelmed by everything that Doctor Patrick C. Hettinger, MD said. I have known all along that this is going to be a very dangerous surgery, but he kind of scared me a little. First, I should point out that it is no longer going to be a single surgery, but two. He recommends this because there would be almost a 100% chance of complications with wound care, but making it two that drops to about 30% of a chance.
So right now the plan is the the first surgery will be sometime in March and will be the big surgery with removal of 75 lbs to 85 lbs of skin and tissue from my belly and groin area. He even described on of the surgical incisions as being from hip to hip. After that surgery I will be at Froedtert for about five days than I will be transferred to a different facility for wound care and physical therapy..
The second surgery will be more of reconstructive procedure, basically rebuilding my penis. We ready did not talk much about the post op and recovery for that surgery anther than the surgery will not reduce functionality.
Well that is enough for now. I am going to try and get some rest, I am not even going to recheck this post for spelling and grammar so sorry if parts are not very understandable. | Posted 7:08 PM
