Well I was supposed to go back yesterday but the vac became unplugged during the night and I didn't notice till I was dressed for work. Whoops. So I called in to work saying I couldn't be back....so now my first day is tomorrow.

My nurse just left and it didn't hurt at all! Thank god! My wound is only as deep as the cottoney part of a q tip! I'm getting there! How you feeling today?

Yeah I saw your pics and mine was definitely smaller than that.
It's still about 5cm long though...I'm hoping when it heals(depth wise) that it will heal quickly length wise.

My nurse just left... slight discomfort during the change but nothing I couldn't handle. She said Ill be done with the vac In 14 days...I told her ten :) how'd you do today?

Not to bad they they used more silver nitrate because part of the wound is still over granulating. I think the wound is less than 1cm in depth

Sounds like your healing up nicely. I'm laying in bed and my damn vac sounds like a coffee pot but I can't find the leak! It's still at 125 mmHg so I'll assume everything is okay.

Yeah, they told me everything was ok if it has a small leak and the machine still says 125mmhg. However I did notice a big difference in drainage when the machine had a complete seal. For me they did not put the the hose directly of the wound. they bridged it over to the side a lil and sometimes it would leak there.

Yeah not sure why but today she didn't bridge it she just put it over the wound. Just had a tall glass of wheat grass.....yum haha

They put it directly over my wound the very first time and I made them take it off as soon as they turned the machine on because it hurt very badly
