Surgery photos

Are you ready?  These photos are in your face.

Well ok, they are in my face.

And yet, I wasn’t shocked.  It must be surgery-fatigue.  I’m not even shocked anymore.

But I didn’t want some poor soul happening upon this site by accident and being greeted by my dissected neck.  With their morning coffee.  It’s a bit much.

To see my latest surgery in all its technicoloured glory, you have to click on these two links.

  1. You are right; the photos are not for the faint of heart. My best wishes go with you again. I am so sorry that you have to endure all this pain.

  2. Kirsten, in the first photograph, what is the red ‘flesh’ at the top right? Is it just a bloodied surgic al glove …

  3. @Kate – Thanks. I’m glad to have the photos to look back on… when all this is a distant memory…

    @Mum – Yes, just a surgical glove I think. The plate came away cleanly, they said, and the photos weren’t taken until after the surgery in any case.
