Cousin Michael and Councilman-elect Fox came over one night last week. It was right before my port catheter redo. The four of us discussed exactly where the groin is!
Michael, as I once had, thought it was right in the middle. No wonder people cringed when they heard the radiologist was going to enter via my groin.
The actual pen tip size incision is on the very soft skin in the crease where my right leg meets my torso. The procedure produced zero pain. Of course I was knocked out with drugs called amnesiacs. Recovery has been pain free too.
The wound is covered by a piece of Tegaderm. Considering its location I’m willing to wait it out, hoping a little soap and water every day will loosen the adhesive. I don’t want to rip it off–not there.
A few nights ago while looking down I noticed there’s a label on the Tegaderm. Someone wrote the date on a tiny label and placed it at the edge. Did they take a photo of my groin? That’s the only conclusion I can make.
Thank God Cousin Michael was wrong.
