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.
