incision still open

I had TAH on 9/25 and am worried about my incision is still open in the middle. I went for my four week checkup and now two weeks later no change. The incision has closed on the sides but has not in the middle. What can I do to help the process.I have a fat stomach too. Help!

Jeannie...I'm 2 weeks post-op tomorrow, & my incision has given me fits about closing up, too. Mine has been just the opposite of yours, though..it's been the ends instead of the middle. I think it is finally starting to heal closed more. It was oozing a bit, too, for a couple of days. The Dr. told me that it will do what it needs to do <ooze or drain> to heal. Unless there is concern that there may be infection, I think this is normal. We need to keep as much stress off of the incision as we possibly can..so we don't pull on it. Keeping our feet up as much as possible, no lifting, straining, etc, will help. Also keeping our fluid intake up & eating nutritiously will help the healing. All I know is I'm ready for all of this to be over with, & I tend to get impatient! I'm trying hard to go slow, though, & do what I need to do..I hope the same for you!

Jeannie,
I am 2 weeks post op today and also have about a half inch opening on the right end of my incision. I have been keeping it very clean with peroxide 2x a day and last night a nurse friend of mine brought me some steri strips and we pulled the incision together (over the roll of fat) and
Im hoping for the best! Kaylynn's advise is also very good, take it easy and eat right! All the best. Amy
