Story of My Healing Wound - Where Did the Pain Go?

Posted 10-27-2014 at 05:39 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

Never in a million years would I believe that a gifted surgeon could cut out the wound, and that horrible undermining and leave me almost pain free. I haven't been without that pain for 2 years but it is gone. I will ask him how that was possible.
When I go back to previous entries pain is mentioned in just about everyone. Pain was so overriding it blocked out just about everything in my life.
What was so upsetting was my inability to convey what kind of pain I was having and where....

Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery

Posted 10-05-2014 at 05:37 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

Yes!! It is done. How was it? Not as bad as I thought.
The plastic surgeon Dr.PS prepared us very well.
Here is what he did.
Made a U shaped incision starting higher than the wound was, removed all the bad tissue and bone, continued cutting into the inner part of my left buttock and came out an inch or so from my my anus.
He is continually sewing my tissue, muscle, skin up to the actual flap. He then pulled the left freed buttock over the right buttock and sewed that...

Through out these past 20 months I have felt fear only a handful of times. Today I am feeling like something bad is coming.

#1. Wound Center APRN has report of the culture and orders antibiotic "A".
#2. 3 days go by and Would Center Dr. W calls, discontinues antibiotic "A" and orders "B". I am allergic to this medication....

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - No End in Sight

Posted 08-07-2014 at 07:02 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

When I started this blog I was close to the end. Dr. S seemed to think that he could surgically remove a "plug" of bad tissue along with a small amount of good tissue sew it up and I'm done!!
I have written many times about pain. Why? Because this wound is very painful. It was the increase in pain that told me that things weren't better, they were worse.
When this wound appeared to be healing, and for a time I would agree but a little voice told me that this wasn't the end....

Story of my Non Healing Wound - the Stand Off Again

Posted 07-25-2014 at 01:51 PM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

I finally worked up the nerve to call the doctors office. His MA is a lovely young woman and I felt comfortable telling her my problem. She listened and will put a note on my chart telling Dr. S to be very clear pre- operatively of what he
wants post- operatively.
I can not sit properly, there is to much pain. If I change my position I take the pressure off and the pain goes away. I truly feel that no matter what they do I will always have the pain.
