We had the other surgery. This time, we left a tight bandage in place for a week, to try to make sure the swelling didn't come right back.
It didn't work.
So, less than a week before court, we were squeezing in yet another surgery. The bandage is staying on for a week again.
If court goes as I expect, he will go home with the wrap still on.
Which means I will probably never know if it actually worked this time.
Trying not to think about that too much.
