Back home after day surgery this morning to patch my fistula, the access site for dialysis. A slight plan change. instead of taking a bit of vein from my ankle, the surgeon decided he could patch without that and so simply an incision in my forearm and the removal of some tissue that was narrowing the fistula. Simpler than plan A. Very little discomfort. Although I have a prescription for Tylenol 3 I have no interest in dealing with the accompanying constipation that the codeine gifts one from that painkiller. No thanks. So back to dialysis tomorrow and armed with secret past knowledge about one of the dialysis clinic nurses provided by an old friend of hers who admitted me to the surgical department this morning. What are friends for.
