Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery

Posted 10-05-2014 at 04:37 AM by RABG (Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery)

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.
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 Healing Wound - the Surgery)

Story of my Non Healing Wound - the Stand Off Again

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

The Story of my Non-Healing Wound - Emotions

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

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...
