Surgeon Visit

Published by doryt at 11:52 pm under Uncategorized

Well I have a followup with my surgeon tomorrow. He will most likely order some plastic surgery for a skin graft on my incision. Due to a PA not putting steri strips on the incision when the temporary cast and stiches were removed on November 04. I developed a gaping hole near the ankle bone. It is not skinning over and very little to no red tissue. Has anyone experienced this?

    Hi. I’m new here and can’t figure out how to make a new post! Doryt - i know this is years old but I want to say: This has happened to me!!! Most of my incision (about 3.5 centimeters) dehisced and partially necrosed at 4 weeks post op. So I am almost to 6 weeks now and in the wound care world. I have 3.5cm x 1cm x .75cm deep hole. This would not be a huge deal elsewhere on my body but the poor blood supply is what caused the dehiscence in the first place - and the poor blood supply is what is going to make this a very long road. I am allowing myself to hope to say goodbye to my new friend - a wound van - in 3 weeks. The granulation tissues has to be even with the skin to make that step. Going from there to wound totally closed - I don’t dare to guess. doryt - It looks like it was an extremely long road for you. But there is an end right?
