    Story of my Non-Healing Wound - The New Player

    Dear RABG,

    You are an inspiration. Thanks for telling your story.
    Prayers and blessings to you for a complete healing. Not in the same area, but I had a staph osteomyelitis that was resistant to antibiotics, which had to be scraped out to the bone. Like you I was warned it could come back.

    After surgery I was kept in isolation in the hospital for a week, then it was packed with sterile gauze and I was sent home till it healed cleanly. After that the scar was revised. I was told that the infection could come back. However, I did exactly as I was told. No showers. Regularly cleaning an inactive body by hand is perfectly adequate to assuage any body odor, don't worry about that.

    The surgery was 40 years ago, and there has never been any sign of re-infection. So, though everyone is different, take heart and believe you definitely can overcome this. Bless your heart, you have been through so much humiliation and suffering! Thank you for sharing your experience.
