Today I got my staples and stitches taken out. There were 29 stitches and 27 staples in the 10.5 inch incision. The Doc says my incision looks good. I've been feeling a bit better every day. My range of motion is already better than I thought it would be. Every morning I wake up very sore and stiff, but after being up for an hour or so, I feel pretty good. By mid-afternoon I'm sore and uncomfortable again and that lasts through the evening. I've been sleeping well though, so I think that's helping.
