I'm healed!

Hi everybody,

Just letting all you guys know that I've been healed ever since the third week of July. It's been an absolute roller coaster. First it was open, then WoundVac, then open again, then nearly healed when a nurse gave me staph, then open again and FINALLY I healed and it healed pretty much perfectly. You can barely tell anything was there!

I have no pain whatsoever from scar tissue, have returned to tennis and am currently working on returning to the National Tennis Centre. I have also returned to work, am returning to the gym within the next week and have booked a holiday with my mates to go to a music festival that runs over New Years.

I feel like a completely different person. The time spent recovering has helped me figure out the world and myself. It was an absolute nightmare but, to be honest, I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to slow down and re-evaluate things.

I just want to thank all the people that answered my queries and comforted me in my numerous times of stress. I wish everyone all the best. And to anyone who is having trouble with this, I never thought I'd be writing in this thread, but here I am. As hard as it is, keep your head up and move forward, one step at a time.

Regards,

Tame_Impala

I don't know if you still check this, but how long did you wait from being fully healed until you went back into carrying out everyday activities

Hi mate! I just thought I’d pop back, seeing as it’s now been over 2 years since I returned back to normal activity.

I can do heavy, deep squats at the gym like I used to, although that probably took about 5-6 months. I started playing tennis about 4 months after surgery.

I just keep the area clean and I’ve had no further problems. Sometimes it aches slightly if I sit right on it but there’s little to no pain.

I just had the regular open wound excision. People who stay around here are usually ones with ongoing troubles. I used to stress and worry when I’d read these forums while in recovery lol.

The vast majority are like me, healed up in the few months and moved on with life :)
