Was the surgery painful? All surgeries are painful. The real question is; was the surgery necessary?
And the answer to that question is: Not really.
Months of splices and surgeries, each more painful than the last as I grew gradually immune to the anaesthetic, and I can’t even make reasonable arguments that the process was necessary.
It’s not for everyone.
Some say it’s not for anyone, that what I’ve done, and become, is an abomination against nature itself.
Yet, when I uncoil gigantic new bat wings and soar off into the night’s sky, I’m too exhilarated to regret my decision.
