This surgery is so different from the two open debredments I have had. The main difference is open vs. closed.
Open means blood, multiple dressings, visiting
nurses, wound center, etc. I was allowed to sit right away. Pain is usually at a 6 but it could go as high as 10.
Closed means...

Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery

Posted 10-05-2014 05:37 AM by RABG
