Scar tissue cleft lift infection

#1
Really anxious at the moment. Have a funny feeling my scar might break open. I have an infection at the moment and have strong antibiotics but doctor didn't say anything about my scar. As no one tell you what to expect I never know what's normal. Wonder if it's jus reshaping as I heard it can take up to 18mths. Pic in comments.

The antibiotics should clear up the infection I would think. I have recently finished a course though and had a similar thing happen. Am awaiting another docs appointment now

I am driving myself mad. Did your come open? Mind seems to be ok just feels different and I worry it will break down. Hope you are getting there?

I've had some bleeding from the wound. Antibiotics have seemed to clear this up for the moment. Hoping it will heal back up again. I think I tried to cycle to much and is what's caused the infection

Wow cycle, since my surgery I feel like I'm scared to do anything exercise wise, everything seems uncomfortable and I don't know if it's scar tissue or new sinus causing problem. Hope you are feeling better and you are healing.

Hi there you seem to be in around the same stage as me with your cleft lift healing. You should be worried that it will break open I am sorry to say, mine has and its infected again been on a few courses of antibiotics but to no avail. Saw my surgeon today and looks like I need yet more surgery.

Good luck with your healing

Really, what has your surgeon said? Mine checked me in June and said it has healed fine. He wrote to my doctor explaining I have another lower down that I can manage or have surgery on. I just never know what is normal. When was your surgery?

My surgery was may 16th been healing for around three months. My surgeon said that to repair the part that split open and raise the cleft even more so that it's practically flat which would give me better chances of not getting another episode like this but im not holding my breath just really annoying :(. Best thing to do is get it done when it's still small tho. I had a blow out on my lower back cause I didn't get it treated when I should have.
