rattlesnake bite aftermath - cut open the arm

bitten by a Northern Pacific rattlesnake
given 30 vials of antivenin
underwent a fasciotomy, which involved the doctors cutting open my arm from the palm up to about the middle of my biceps. This was to relieve the extreme pressure that had built up in my arm
had 8 surgeries performed for cleaning out the dead tissue from my arm, and finally had a skin graft from my leg to close up my arm
