After the minor operation on the left side of my hips, I now am sporting a hole on my side. My wife’s cousin who is a nurse said that it might take about a month for it to completely heal. The operation left an oval shaped wound with a one-inch length which also makes it quite difficult for me to wear just any urban clothes. I would need to wear my pants high-waisted so the belt would not squeeze the wound. But I am glad that the infection is gone and it is now on its way to healing properly.
