So my wound split open just before xmas. Family doc gave me antibiotics (it was leaking pus) and I went to see my surgeon. I was scheduled for a "minor surgery" tomorrow, to do what my surgeon called a mini excision, pretty much the same thing I had done before but only with local freezing as it wouldn't be so deep. She wanted to do this because she saw a "tunnel". BUT I had a pre-surgery visit with her on this past Friday (like 3 days ago) and she said I was healed up all fine (tunnel gone) and that the antibiotics and the bit of cutting she did to me on the last visit must have taken care of it and she said I didn't need another surgery, I was so happy. Now, of course, I was feeling a bit of pain in the area yesterday and just decided to ignore it. Well there was more pain today, so I checked it out and of course the damn scar has split open AGAIN! Bleeding, doesn't look like it's leaking anything but blood at this point. [:^] What the hell do I do? Just leave it and have it heal again? And rip open again? Go back to my surgeon and have her recommend surgery again? I don't think the PC is back, it's just that my damn scar keeps ripping open after it's been closed for weeks. What am I doing wrong? How do I stop it from ripping open? I'm still taking it easy, haven't found a new job yet, not doing any exercise cause I'm worried about ripping it open. I'm not putting any strain on it other then when I'm sitting down. This is driving me crazy. And there is no way humanly possible that I can get a cleft lift. It's an 8 hour drive to the closest doc that does it and I don't drive or have a car or have anyone willing to drive me. I've also looked for wound care centers. We don't have any. This thing is really pushing me to my limits, I don't know how much more of this I can take.
