Yesterday’s visit to the dr was good as dr stopped the wound vac treatment and moved me to wet/dry wound care.
Feels better although the tape is tough on the skin but I can move more with less pain. Yippee.
Long road of recovery that I hope is now smoother.
Since my last update, a lot has gone on. It’s a list! Recently I had a debridement on the chest to treat an infection 6 months after the last OHS, wore a wound vac 24 days. Then 1 week and 1 day later on the same spot as the debridement, and 7 months and 8 days after the last OHS, an infected sternum wire was removed and again dealing with a wound vac again. Has anyone else experienced such a late sternum wire infection?
My surgeon is real good about answering my questions but this site is great. Thank you. The poem. The posts.
October 30 is the day the dr will replace the aortic and aortic valve. My bicuspid aortic valve has developed severe stenosis and caused the aortic to develop an aneurysm.
