Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Wow, that thread title scared me. I'm glad there's no recurrence. Considering how much trouble you had with that wound, they probably should have done something like this a while ago. I hope everything goes smoothly and that this is the beginning of the end of your health issues.

Re: Ziyal is having more surgery

Sorry, didn't mean to scare you, RJ.

You're right, of course. The original plastic was way too passive. The straw that broke the camel's back was that I found out that the home health agency's wound specialist and the nurse case manager at the insurance company had both contacted her office to suggest that something needed to be changed since the wound had stopped improving, and both of them had been brushed off. So I took myself to a very experienced wound care doc, and he referred me to this new plastic. Described him as the surgeon he would go to "if it were my ass." hehehe

Hooray! *Does happy dance*

The bad news is that the surgical wound never did heal properly...

Long story made short, I have a new plastic and reconstructive surgeon, still at Hopkins and highly recommended by several other docs. He's going to go back in and clean it out on Wednesday afternoon. Expects to discharge me on Friday.

Supposedly they're going to do the same things as last time to help me manage my PTSD -- no male caregivers (except obviously the surgeon himself) and so on. I'm more nervous about that part than the actual surgery.

Compared to what I've been through before, this is minor stuff. But prayers and support would still be very much appreciated. I'll have the iPad with me.
You'll be fine! Here's a kitty for you!

Were you ever able to get rid of the wound vac?

And I sure hope someone got held liable for what they did to you.

Supposedly they're going to do the same things as last time to help me manage my PTSD -- no male caregivers (except obviously the surgeon himself) and so on. I'm more nervous about that part than the actual surgery.
I can't blame you. I'd take a sheet in with a reminder to hand them as soon as you get there. I know you could just tell them, but when I get in complex medical situations it helps me to have stuff written down.

Compared to what I've been through before, this is minor stuff. But prayers and support would still be very much appreciated. I'll have the iPad with me.
You will definitely have my prayers.



And Rhubarbodendron...I LOVE what you did to your surgeon! Awesome!

That's okay. It was balanced by the feeling of relief.

So I took myself to a very experienced wound care doc, and he referred me to this new plastic. Described him as the surgeon he would go to "if it were my ass." hehehe
That's a question we should ask every doctor we go to: "What if it were your ass on the line?"
