Surgery took about a half hour this morning. Biggest holdup was due to the weather, the surgeon was late and so was a fair amount of the hospital staff. I’ve got about a week before the stitches come out, then I’m pretty much back to normal and can (hopefully) go back to my gym.

So yeah, know all those gross-out videos on the Internet or that Pantera video where they pop some huge fucking zit and squeeze a shitload of goop out?
Kinda similar. Skin on the back is real thick… Took several shots of pain-killer to actually make it so that the shit didn’t hurt. I’m definitely glad I couldn’t see what was going on I would have likely dry-heaved until I passed out.
Long story short, its apparently a common thing that oil-glands in skin will die, when they do they fill with goop and become cysts. The one removed from my back this morning was about the size of a golf-ball.
The needles delivering the painkillers were the most painful part, but there’s nothing like being wide awake while someone is carving you up with a scalple and you can’t feel it. Not a very pleasant experience.
So now I’m just waiting to hear if there is any bad news from the tests on the cyst that was removed, besides that I just get to take it easy SOME MORE.
This taking it easy shit has its limits.
