Saw my doctor about my bloodclots today--all good on that front. Will take the Xarelto for six months instead of four. Fine. He reassured me about some of the aches I've been having. (Some days I feel like I could become quite the hypochondriac! The days are long; the pangs are sharp sometimes.) He was amazed at how much better I looked, said I was a totally different person.
My surgeon's appointment has been moved to Tuesday, but I'm not worried about anything.
Feeling pretty good, all things considered.
