Story of my Non-Healing Wound - Fear

Posted 08-13-2014 at 05:28 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)
Updated 08-14-2014 at 06:29 AM by moderator2

Through out these past 20 months I have felt fear only a handful of times. Today I am feeling like something bad is coming.
The Wound Center came back with moderate MRSA,e-coli, and 2 others.
Here is the way this situation has played out.
#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 06:02 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

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

The Story of my Non-Healing Wound - Emotions

Posted 07-19-2014 at 02:39 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

Why is it that when your feeling better and want to do some thing physical there is a doctor who tells you No!
In my case it is yard work vs my pain doctor. I need that yard work physically and mentally, it gives me a sense of pride. I have raked leaves, snipped away at tons of briars, dragged small limbs, pulled endless weeds and have had a good time doing it.
But, the doctor tells me no. Why? Because it will hurt my back, make the stress fractures worse or create new ones. I truly...

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - the Dilemma

Posted 07-02-2014 at 04:14 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

It has been a long time since I have written. The choice of surgical intervention vs. Oasis and waiting is very hard to make.
Two camps
Surgical - my surgeon, my husband
Wait- everybody else in the world
This wound has stalled yet again. It refuses to heal completely. I said completely, it does heal by centimeters, 1cm. only. Waiting means it may heal be September.
The surgeon and my husband want this ordeal over. Sew the darn thing up and go live your life. 10...
