Incision is open

It was infected and now it's piped open. I have a lil hole on it. Clear liquid comes out but that could be water from showers storing in there. So off to the dr. I'm guessing it will need to be packed. Sigh. And the mucus on the Loo paper was pinkish. Ugh I so can't be bothered dealing with this.

Re: Incision is open

Stupid me tried to be helpful while I couldn't not sleep. I made 4 lunches for later today. Cooked eggs to make egg sandwiches for hubby. Never thought making lunches would hurt so like this. I even used a chair to sit on for most of it.

I know I should be resting but it's driving me nuts. Thought sitting and making lunch be fine. Ugh ugh. What are you guys doing to keep sane?

Re: Incision is open

Oh hun it will get better. Do you like to read? Or watch movies? Your doing to much is why you have a little pink on the paper. Your body is telling you that you need to take it easy. I know its hard I have 4 kids and just about went crazy and now I am gearing up for yet another surgery ugh.... So trust me I know what you are going through. It will get better and your body would heal fast and better if you would just take it easy and let your body do its job of healing. You really really really need to sit your butt down and do nothing and thats an order young lady. Please take care of yourself for your sake and your families.

Re: Incision is open

HI Ellea,

The doctor packed your incision? Not mine. I had surgery on 3/1 my incision reopened after the staples were removed on 3/4. It is about 4 inches wide and about 3 inches deep. No packing. My husband cleans it with peroxide 3 times a day.

I pray you are doing better now.

Re: Incision is open

Ow ow ow... I feel for you! My incision was stitched & still has steri-strips on it 11 days later; they and the stitches are supposed to come out on their own. Take care of yourself and feel better. I'm going pretty nuts doing nothing too.
