Awesome!

Call me, been trying to get in touch with you for about 3 months.

Operation looked to be a breeze.

Ay caramba! This is why I'm not in the medical field!! It's is pretty neat though. Amazing what the human body can handle. Hope he's doing good and is even more happy after bar removal.

Hello everyone,

Just thought i would let everyone know im doing great. my chest has only reverted slightly, but that's expected, but nothing like the first surgery.

It may not be clear but they only make a cut on one side (left side) to remove the bar. during my previous removal they make a cut on both side but that was to remove the stabilizers which most doctors no longer use.

i hope to post some pictures of my chest and the scare in a few day, ive just been busy with the recovery and im starting another college semester in a few days.

Bernie:

Yes i am put "under" when they take the bar out. as for how they put me under. they give me an IV, put a nitros mask over my face for a minute or so then anesthetics are administered via the IV, and you go to sleep (i managed to count to 7 before i passed out )and the sleep completely dreamless sleep.

and then you wake up in recovery with a mask that makes you break humid air.

Great results man!

i'm just curious how the people feel after bar removal...do you feel free to have a good contact and ready to practice some contact sports?

(i mean, days after bar removal during the pain and recovery xD)

J: Did they takes pics of that? Putting the mask on your face, administering the iv and such?

How are you doing these days?

How about any regression?

Hoping all is well in this dump economy.
