Really nervous this morning

Nov 03, 2015 5:52 AM

Morning everyone,
Please keep the prayers/good vibes coming today. Have an emergency appointment this afternoon, for a possible post-op wound infection at my surgeons office at noon today. This is not what I needed to have happen already. Fingers crossed, no hospital admission.

Oh Amanda... I'm sorry this is happening. Don't think too far ahead. Sending you positive vibes and {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that all goes well and that the doctor is able to help you in his office. I'll give you an example that will give you hope. (It's gross though, sorry). I had major abdominal surgery for lipomas and had a 14" incision and when all done, a drain that I had to come home and empty. Well, by the fourth day, the fluid had turned green and murky with stuff in it and it smelled like a sewer!! I went to the doctor on an emergency appointment, he took a culture of it, put me on a strong antibiotic and told me to go home, rest and see how it was in 2-3 days. He said if it worsened before that it didn't get better to come back and I'd have to probably go to the hospital. It worked and I was not admitted. Hang on to hope, it's ablest there. Sending {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that all goes smoothly.💕🙏🏻🌻

You know what, on second thought, I have a surgeons appointment on Thursday morning. Might just get her to take a look at it as well. It honestly looks like my body is spitting stitches right now and I need to be careful due to my history.

Amanda, that is your best bet!! The surgeon will help you clean and protect the area. That, or you will be a given a prescription to weehave treatments specific to whatever this infection turns out to be. I pray that they are able to pinpoint the problem so they are able to make you better. I am sending you lots of love, gentle hugs and prayers are heading in your direction. I pray that you feel significantly better really fast. (And, of course, an espe

Alwayz, I'm pretty it looks like a stitch abscess right now. Usually, with me, they can just quickly cut that end of the stitch out and be done with it.

Amanda I hope that it turns out to be nothing when your surge. Looks at it. Sending you lots of hugs and prayers .
