Last night I ran out of food, so I had to venture outside to get groceries. I’d been out a couple of times before, but getting groceries last night was my biggest adventure. It was pretty rough; I had to walk really slowly and I was in pain the whole time. By the time I got back home, I just wanted to take my T3s and sleep. When I tried to, though, I kept getting erections as I was falling asleep. The pain made it impossible to sleep well. On top of that, my stitches started to dissolve and that process is incredibly itchy. Between these two irritations, I think I only managed about four hours last night. Not good.
This morning things look pretty much the same as they did yesterday, with a couple of exceptions. First, the stitches have a bit of yellow crustiness around them–part of the dissolution process–and second, the skin on my glans is starting to peel off. I think the latter is happening because of the rubbing that occurred when I was out and about last night. I’m kind of glad it’s peeling, because right now my glans looks really weird–like someone stretched Saran wrap over it–and I don’t like it. Today I will be going out again, so hopefully that facilitates the peeling process.
Pictures are below:
You can see that the skin on my glans is quite dry and the iodine stain is still there. I’m hoping that it will go away when the skin peels off. Since I took these pictures, the swelling has done down slightly.
