Hand Under Fistula

The aftermath of Tuesday's fistula surgery on my left arm:

Thankfully, I had only one episode of really serious pain on Tuesday night, and I was able to ward it off with the help of ice packs and Tylenol.  The arm still bothers me some when I type, so I'm going to have to gradually "ramp up" to a normal level of activity.

Over time, the fistula will mature and, if all goes well, will be able to be used for dialysis access if it is necessary.

Thanks to all of you who sent well-wishes.
