Uncomfortably Numb

After my surgery, I noticed part of my abdomen is numb, no doubt from nerves being severed when they were slicing through my belly.

It’s an annoying feeling, especially coupled with the sensitivity of the healing incision.

Using a pin, I figured out the boundaries of the numb spot, and that’s what’s marked in blue here.

The surgeon said I may regain feeling there, but it may take months. And also it won’t be until after new year’s that the muscle is healed enough for me to do anything but walk around (no lifting over 10 pounds).

Sigh. Hopefully someday I’ll be less broken.
