Texasmom...I know exactly how you feel...my 18yo has had 2 open procedures and the wound vac 2x...he completely healed for 1 week then the new skin started breaking down and we are back to drsg changes 2x a day with dakins.....I am extremely anxious about this whole thing!! what a nightmare for my child....we have been dealing with this since 12/2011. He is due to go to college 5hrs away from us in D.C on Aug 29th....... our local surgeon is at a loss as to why it won't heal and wants us to see a plastic surgeon who I have already spoke to and he told me "guys deal with this all the time they just put dry gauze back there"...which is not an acceptable answer!! We have an appt. with a cleft lift surgeon Monday to get info and weigh our options. How is your child?? Hope they are healed...could use some hope!!
