Sorry i havent been on in awhile! Went and saw the doc today. Its 3 holes again. 2 are the size of a toothpick and the other is still the cue tip size. Very shallow. Another round of antibiotics and she wants to put a bit of aquacell packing in the base. Im a bit lost. So just got to wait another 2 weeks. Other tan that i feel pretty damn good. Just getting really tired of this.
Hey sorry for my delay. I saw the doc yesterday. There is just now one hole again. It went down from 2 cm to one cm in 2 weeks. She thought it looked alot better and im just hoping it keeps going well. I go back in 3 weeks and im still packing it as best as we can because there isnt a whole lot of room. Still just nervous and not wanting the others to come back but she did check to make sure it wasnt going up to where they were. It started to bleed again of course because of checking it. Not a lot though. Just want this sucker to close up so i can move on. Still very encouraged she was as well, just taking longer than expected. Hope all of you are doing well!
Brandon - I had open wound surgery in August 2014. It healed up fine in about 8 weeks, but within 2 or 3 weeks of getting the all clear from my surgeon I had a hole open up in the incision. Slightly bigger than a Q-tip but less than a cm across. I went back twice every four weeks and the surgeon did the same thing you describe - poke at it to make sure it wasn't tunneling and then silver nitrate. He wasn't concerned and just said "it's a difficult place for a wound to heal" But then in January, 3 months after the original wound healed, two more small "dimple like" holes opened up above the Q-tip hole. All three bleed intermittently with minor pain and kinda open and close every few days. They look just like the pits I had before the flare up that caused my August surgery. I opted not to go back to my original surgeon and just schedule cleft lift with Dr. Sternberg in San Francisco. I'm just assuming that the disease is back (or was never completely gone) but since your doc doesn't seemed concerned that you have 3 holes it's making me wonder if I'm over reacting. I do have minor pain, very subtle, but recognizable. Did your doc give you any more information or reasons why she didn't think it was a re-occurrence?
Wow I cant believe its been 3 and a half years. Im very sorry for not responding to all of you. Everything is great and I am back to a normal life finally. It officially healed June of 2015. My doctor left the office unexpectedly and that created a few issues lol. I don't know if you are all still active on here but feel free to ask any questions at all regarding the surgery/recovery.
Hi Lilly! Good to hear from you. Thank you. I definitely would recommend her, she did a fantastic job and was very good throughout the whole recovery. She moved back to Detroit and now she has her practice in La. Porte Indiana apparently. Dr. Dorene Zerfas. I never got details as to why she left. The office never even notified me lol and i showed up for an appointment and they told me she wasnt there anymore lol.
