A Fistula Called Maceo

I got staples taken out of my arm today. Apparently, Mickey Rourke has staples removed from his back in The Wrestler. It feels about how I imagined it would feel. My surgeon thinks everything looks great. He told me to take care of my fistula. In kidding around with him and his assistant, somehow I wound up naming my fistula Maceo.

Some people really like looking at gross medical things. If you do, here’s an annotated picture of my arm that documents my fistula history. I was going to put a thumbnail of the photo here, but I know I don’t want to look at someone else’s surgical wounds and scars. It took me ten days just to look at my own.

I kidded that my surgeon should publish a coffee table book of his surgeries.
