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.

We're secretly hoping to drive people mad not knowing who's who. Oops, gave the game away.

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.
ARGH. Thinking happy thoughts for you. I'm hoping this is the LAST time you have to go through this. *fingers crossed*

Aw, man. Just when everything seemed okay. I hope this is just a false alarm and no more surgery is needed. As always, fingers are crossed for you.

I don't know what I hope at this point. Other than the obvious -- that this damn thing heal.

Maybe y'all better uncross those fingers, folks, or there are going to be an awful lot of typos on the board!

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Dang it, didn't even get to "Yeah" the stitches out and you got a problem again. Phooey.
Maybe go back to some old fashioned folk medicine and throw some honey on it. Natural antibiotic and helps heal, I've heard. Hugs and best wishesTZ hang in there.

Thanks for the hugs, ladies. Ancientone, natural remedies like honey may work on superficial wounds, butt unfortunately most of my problem is deep inside.

I hope you won't need a wound vac again, Ziyal. Sending more hugs and positive vibes your way.

I happened to be chatting with a cousin last eve. She is a nurse that works with burn patients and knows a lot about wounds. I asked about non-healing deep wounds without getting into specifics. Her answers were packing it, wound vacuum and then hyperbaric chamber treatments.

^ Interesting. We've done two out of three. Hyperbaric treatment might be worth asking about. Thanks.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Hubbhy had vac and hyperbaric for his diabetic foot problems (including a toe amputation) It was a bother, but helped. Of course we lived 40+ miles from the chamber and did it 5 days a week for several weeks. If your doc thinks it will help, do it. Bring something to read, don't think you can take electronics in.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

That's interesting that he had both, because they're kind of opposites. The vacuum reduces oxygen, and hyperbaric tx increases it.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

The short version of today's app't with the surgeon:

We came up with a plausible reason why the wound temporarily deteriorated when it did. (Notice I said "temporarily". Yes, it started improving again the next day. ) Either it will heal completely, in its own good time and without any further treatment, or it will need extensive surgery. He doesn't recommend considering surgery for at least three months. So, next appointment in three months, but holler if I need him in-between.

Wave bye-bye to this thread, folks.

That sounds like a good thing. My own wound did the same. It almost seemed I'd got a terrible infection for a day or two, I was terrified, and then was fine. Mine healed naturally, it's not a very nice scare but I don't mind it. They have offered to try and fix it with plastic surgery but any surgery is dangerous for me, I have opted not to have the plastic surgery.

Hope it goes well for you.
