Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

The roller coaster ride continues. From Friday to this morning, the tiny bit of wound left deteriorated significantly. So I have another app't with the surgeon on Thursday.

I am so tired of this shit! So ANGRY! At the whole situation, not at the doc in particular. He did say there was a chance that the conservative option might not work.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Non-healing wounds are such a literal pain! Last year, my brother had a problem with a non-healing wound on his ankle from a bike accident. The doctors tried just about everything to get it to heal, finally they put this thing called a wound vac on it. The thing closed in 4 weeks.

Good luck with the doc, I hope they find you a solution.

Thanks for the encouragement, Spooky Cat. Unfortunately, I'm very familiar with wound vacs. Had one for a year. Didn't do the trick.

Sorry to hear it's not going well. I had a wound open after an appendectomy and the healing process took forever. 4 months of having nurses come out and pack the wound every day and a few weeks of every other day before it fully healed. So I feel your pain there.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

^Yes, you do. But what I mostly picked up on was the daily nursing at home. Here, insurance usually won't pay for more than two or three visits a week.

Was lucky to have the NHS to do that. The doctor was awkward at first about prescribing the supplies they needed but after the first week or two he was fine about it. Must be a nightmare if they're not funding the home visits for you.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

I get three visits a week. The first few months that wasn't enough, and my former husband and our nurse friend did a lot of caregiving. But for over a year now, it's been fine. Of course, if I end up getting more extensive surgery again, who knows? Trying not to think about that possibility yet.

Fingers crossed on not needing it.

Add my positive thoughts to that goal as well. Good luck!

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Should the doctor have prescribed bed rest or something, so that the wound wouldn't be affected by movement?

Since this has resisted SO many techniques, is there any chance of your being enrolled now into a clinical trial? I don't know if you remember that Skin Gun video from last year, but that does make me think there have to be some new technologies and techniques out there that could be better than the standard ones.

And personally, I still think the people who screwed it up in the first place by leaving stuff in the wound should be held liable for all that has come after.

Don't have anything useful to suggest. So here's a giant hug.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

This must be incredibly frustrating; you have my sympathies. It's so disheartening, being unable to function normally due to injury or illness; it plays havoc with your mood and affects your whole outlook on life. But you've dealt with this so well, and I know you'll continue to move forward, no matter the setbacks.

As always, my thoughts are with you. Good luck!

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Thanks for the good wishes and hugs, everyone. They're much appreciated!

DN, yeah, it is playing havoc with my mood. I'd like to crawl into a hole and not emerge until I'm entirely well.

Piglet and Pooh, I love your matching avatars and sigs.
