I am sooooooo looking forward to getting this done! I have read about Dr's using Exparel as a 72 hour numbing agent that they inject before sewing you back up.....rather than using pain pumps, I think this is what my Dr. Is using and I am so thrilled, sounds like a fairly new approach to pain (April 2012), my Dr. Also does quilting sutures that I believe sews or glues??

I had a TT & BA on march 5th and my PS does use the same stitch. I have some swelling but I don't think it's been to bad. He also uses Exparel It works reallly well, I only had to take 3 painkillers total. Hope that helps.
