Default update.

well my "last surgery" wasn't my last one. A year and a half later, I began having pain associated with my malformation. My specialist said it was beyond his expertise and sent me to another doctor. I went to over 12 different specialist before finding one who would help. It was definitely a frustrating time. Though the ending result with the specialist I now have was great. He did the surgery along with his partner and another pediatric surgeon helped as well. The malformation looks a LOT better now, thanks to him and the severe pain I had is gone! About a year after that a spot had become very painful, so only that small "hard spot" was removed. It's been 4 months since then and I am pain free from it, so far so good. I couldn't have asked for a better specialist, he is awesome. My family support system is still amazing, and I also now have an amazing supportive boyfriend who's been there for me. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.
