Brandon went home from the hospital late yesterday afternoon. The pain had subsided enough that the doctors felt it could be managed at home. The plastic surgeon came in and talked to Brandon and Kristen before he was discharged and explained his part in the surgery in more detail. He also showed them pictures from the operating room. After talking with him, Brandon realized that the surgery was more invasive than he thought. He’s on restrictions as far as exercise and lifting for four months, and the basic recovery time will be six weeks. He said this morning that the pain was more intense during the night last night, but we’re sure that will come and go for a while. We are just hopeful that the recovery process continues in the right direction and he doesn’t go through the challenges he went through after his last surgery.
Thanks for checking in on him, and please keep praying!
