    It started right at the top of his cleft and goes clear down to his rectum. It was very long and deep :(

    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!

    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.

    Did you ever find anywhere near you that sells wheat grass? Do you have a smoothie factory near you? I called them today and they have 1oz shot for $1.99 and 2oz shot for $2.99. They have locations all over north texas. Here is a link to their location page. http://www.smoothiefactory.com/storelocator.htm

    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...
