It’s been a long road with this damn wound and I appreciate all the support. At twenty weeks and one day, the good news is that I am on the last mile of my wound marathon.
For those of you who wonder what a wound marathon looks like, I have posted a few photos to show you. Be warned, some of them ain’t pretty:
Once we began the aggressive treatment of debridement (digging out the slough, which is the yellow goo) and applying Silvadene (antibacterial agent with silver nitrate particles), the healing began. These wound complications are somewhat rare (so are re-ruptures…ha!) but doctors don’t seem to have any universally agreed treatment methods. So I hope that this may help someone else.
I wish all my brothers and sisters good healing.
