Tried as much as I could the surgeon was just too much of a traditionalist !!!! I did explain it was SHARP, had a proven record of opening up bodies and I had given it a good clean and oil, but alas he would not be in it. Maybe it was because I was the reason of him being called in at 2200hrs. Frankly the scars are unimpressive (I was hoping to pass them of as being the result of a croc/lion/boar goring but they look more like a shaving nick (but hurt like holy hell!!). My only complaint is that the "beautician" who dealt with the pre-op "manscaping" was a bit ordinary !!! My neither regions and rock hard abs do not at ll look professionally groomed, more like a drunk monkey with a razor blade !!! That regrowth is going to itch !!!!! Back to feeling sorry for myself.
