5 Weeks, 5 Days: Drainage less but ongoing

I’m still feeling pretty good. I have arranged to return to work on the 18th (in 12 days) and I’m looking forward to it. I might have been able to go back later this week and been alright but I feel confident that I’ll be good to go by the end of next week.

I still have a tiny amount of yellow-colored fluid draining from the hole left at the vaginal closure but I’m hopeful that it will stop soon. I have a couple of antibiotics left so we’ll see what happens. If I still have yellow-colored drainage in a few days I’ll go see my doctor. I’ll be emailing an update to Miro (my surgeon) on Wednesday so I’ll see what he says.

    Hey! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences so thoroughly! I do have one question though. When miro fashions your scrotum, is it two separate sacs or does he join them in the center? I believe I’ve seen both.

    • It’s actually two separate sacs. The mid-line between them is sutured but that is due to the vaginal closure. I imagine he could do a revision later to join the two sacs but you’d have to check with him about that.

      I’m glad the blog is helpful and thanks for letting me know.

    So just curious, did you have to apply for a leave of absence or something from your job? I need to start thinking about planning this kind of thing someday but curious if you had much trouble getting the time off!

    • I did take a leave of absence. I also used vacation days so I’d have some income while I was off work.
