On the down side, I'm still enough in recovery that the progress is notable every day. I'm looking forward to when it's not quite so remarkable day to day. I'm also looking forward to being able to stretch comfortably without feeling like it's pulling in weird, hidden places, and generally forgetting about the whole thing.
Let's hear it for laparoscopic surgery, though. This whole process would be extended by a factor of 3 or 4 without it, and I'm incredibly grateful that it was an option available to me.
