Chest wound / post 'debridement' operation
Day 1 (the morning after surgery, which was the 23/11/2013 in normal international format)
a few days into it, first day of the VAC pac redressing.
today (the date of the blog post), 3 days after the VAC dressing has been removed.
its getting smaller and getting more 'well healed' looking
PS: Subsequent to this post the green muck that you can see on the chest in the above picture kept flowing. I then underwent a second debriement surgery in Feb 2013, and that looked a little worse.
The following image is taken 2 days post that debridement
things healed fast with the combination of the VAC and silver based dressings.
There were a few subsequent eruptions but the discharge has reduced significantly , especially in comparison to the first operation (which kept oozing green goo).
My present status (23/12/2013) is that the wound has healed and that so far nothing has erupted for a few months now. The last eruption was on 13th of August 2013
That settled over a matter of a week. Since then it has been quiet on the visible front with only intermittent grumbling in the mean time.
For now I remain on antibiotics (still).
I will update this post with further information as it comes to hand.
