Numb Stomach & a plaster the size of a handkerchief


Just back from the hospital, where they put oestrogen & testosterone implants & zoladex under the skin of my abdomen. Despite the lidocaine, it hurt like hell. But, am feel gaunty & young & feeling shiny so it doesn't matter. There are three plasters over the wound, a little pyramid of gauze.
