Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. My scar, although about six inches long, is not really noticeable unless I turn my head away from the observer. I do also have a bit of a tissue lump under my chin. At my age and for what I have been through I really don't let it bother me. I am who I am on the inside and as long as I don't gross people out, it's all good. Now of course the leg scar where they got the bone implant from is a nice long zipper line which occasionally draws comments at the beach or golf course. I have toyed with the idea of getting either a fish head tattoo or a zipper pull tattoo but for now I simply say to the curious when asked "just don't swim with sharks." That usually puts a stop to such personal invasion. Still working on the bugle.
I hope all goes well with you. In the end you should be far better off and that is what really matters. You have a long life ahead and you should have the best life you can. Good luck.

That’s ok I have been really busy lately as well. I think now that I know what procedure I have to undergo I do feel a bit panicked over everything that will happen, did the scars take long to fade. I am however excited to shut down nosy people! I think a fish head tattoo would be really cool as well. Thank you for the support I know I will be ok it’s just about getting there!
