    Sleeved on the 14 too, take it easy, listen to your body and don't do too much.

    3 weeks out

    Oh no, going to the counselor was a great start. Don't stop! Have you been to see your doc post op? Yes those are sutures- suppose to be dissolvable sutures but sometime they get missed and need to be clipped. I've had the same thing. Don't get down on yourself, chin up your doing great

    Pre op question

    Once all your appts have been met and you have been cleared and have to ok from insurance from 3 month monitoring your surgeons office will contact you to schedule surgery. I would say about a month after your last appt. give or take
