Some pain but not too bad. I absolutely made the right decision and glad it's over. Dr Clavel is the man. An artist and will post pics soon.

Bones strong by the way. You know what that means.

Tender belly, dizzy, but up sitting in chair.

Not used to sitting. Strange. Better than lying flat on back.
