I went back to see Dr. Rubble, who informed me that my infection had cleared, but that my incision needs to remain open to heal and prevent re-infection. He also reminded me to Q-tip my wound but shot me a look that suggested that he knew I’d avoid Q-tipping at all costs.
He discussed the possibility of me having an unlovely scar on my left breast that might need revision (aka a cosmetic procedure), but that we’d worry about that after I have healed. Yep. I will need it. I feel rather depressed and self-conscious over the whole thing. Not that a nude photoshoot or Girls Gone Wild appearance is on my to-do list. But man, I don’t want to look like a Fangoria centerfold either….
