The last 4 months have been quite a journey. Sadly I’ve had a setback. Over the last months sutures have discharged from my wound (about 3) plus a longer suture which was stuck in the wound. This one is, apparently, non dissolvable and has got infected. Looks like I need further surgery. The best case is that the suture is snipped back in theatre and a ‘vaccuum pack’ is used to repair the hole. The worst case is that the wound will need reopening and cleaning. It all depends on what they find when I have theatre. I was told that the worst case may involve plastic surgery. Obviously this is all pretty unappealing and I’m dreading the thought of going through this again….
Any thoughts on the above? I’m currently on anti-biotics to reduce the infection but I’m dreading the thought of what lies in the wound…..
