My sons surgery story 1/27/2011

Im glad it was looking better today, let us know what the dr says tomorrow. will pray everything goes well. Also did you ever try to go for a second opinion at a wound care center or anything?
 
Hello Texasmom
I'm just checking in on you n your son, His wound is still not closed, I'm so sorry to hear that. How is he doing ?
My son is doing great he says" he got his life back" I'm sending some positive healing thoughts your sons way <3
 
He is actually doing great! He is back to his old self and the wound doesnt bother him at all. However it is still an open wound and doesnt seem to bother him much. We went to the dr today and he said a wound care center was not necessary and wasnt against using the aquacel. He thought we would be closed in two weeks however he thought he would be able to go to school 3 days after surgery so who know ugh...frustrated!
 
Ok so all of a sudden the wound seemed to have kick started and we are healing again, not sure why,we arnt doing anything different but it is very noticable! Yay!!!
 
He had his surgery on Jan 27th so we are about 2 1/2 months out. We are so ready to be done with this for good as Im sure everyone here is as well. I guess we just need to continue to be patient and in time it really will heal shut.
 
Understandable, Im also in the healing process. Im 30 days post op and have been laying in bed for those 30 days :( . Im on the wound vac now so I cant get up and move to much without a chance of breaking the seal :( . Anyway just glad to hear your son is having progress.

Oh Mike I'm so sorry to hear that, What the heck is going on? Please fill me in on everything that is going on.
 
I dont have one close to me but I have been looking for the powder, I will probably just buy on line. We go back to the doc next Friday, Im a little concerned still about the pocket at the end of the wound, we'll see what he says then...
