i had surgery in late sept. 2011. healing is very slow going. the dr. keeps saying it is healing just really slowly. i finally had the silver nitrate done about 3 months ago. it closed my bottom hole about 1/2 way. all was going good, no more overly bloody gauze changes. then about a month ago it started bleeding again. made an appointment and again had silver nitrate applied. this time on both top and bottom. top has pretty much closed, we thought. we cant see any holes but i still am bleeding a little from somewhere on top. bottom is closing but very slowly about 1/4 inch left. yet again for the lat week no real bleeding, just a little yellowish orange discharge.till this morning. i have been using multidex, it has seemed to stop helping. i dont know where to go from here. it sucks more because the heat seems to make me bleed more and we have had unseasonally warm weather in buffalo, 73 today. i suffer from depression and this has made it worse. i feel like i keep disappointing my kids because of wont i cant do, i have missed so much in the last 6 months. and now i am having anxiety panic attacks over summer vacations and being able to get in the pool with the kids. and going camping with the scouts. i go back on the 28th hopefully he can give me some hope... does anyone else have any ideas???? i am pretty much at my breaking point and cant seem to snap out of this depression.
