Awe Beautiful Sunshine to lift the Spirits! My funk has an explanation-Infection

A Beautiful Sunny Day to all...We have had the most beautiful weather the last couple of weeks and I have so been loving it.the Farmers are now in desperate neeed of some rain..
you remember me mentioning I was in a really bad Funk in one of my post..Well I finally have some answers to my funk..I thought it was just post op depression..& i guess it is to some degree but tht is only a piece of it..
The picture above is the day after surgery and my incession looks great. I was feeling pretty great too all things considered..No pain pretty much just tired after surgery...
But as luck would have it ... seems I haven't any luck.. every day I seem to feel worse rather then better. thus the funk I talked about.
Over the past couple of weeks my incession started to really hurt, then it started to swell in a couple of places, turned really red, and was wam to the the doctore put me on antibiotics to ward off infection..after a few days it felt better and I finished the antibiotic. things seemed better other then I felt a little depressed and fell into a funk.
Seems the infection didn't go away, it only got worse....and once again about 5 days ago my neck started to swell up again, turn red & feel really hot o the touch.
I've had over 10 major surgeries and seveal tooth extractions over my life time so this baffled me that this incession wasn't healing properly. About 5 days ago my incesion decided to break open in several places due to infection. It appears that my body is not desolving the stitches rather it is battling them and casusing the incession to brake open from the infection being caused from the stitches trying to pop out.. some have already popped out but there are over 100 stitches in there according to the doctor.
they put me back on antibiotics till my next appointment next Thursday to ward off the infections across my incesion but that doesn't resolve the body not disolving the stitches.
Sorry no pictures of my neck this round it is pretty gross looking with open holes in the incesion...

What a mess ..all I wanted was to feel better and every day I feel worse and now my neck looks worse..
And once again all I want to do is Sleep...

the doctor isn't sure what he will have to do if none of the stitches disolve. He mentioned having to go in the remove them if they continue to abcess and break open. did I mentionif it weren't for bad luck I would have no luck at all..well it true..this thyroid adventure has been the worst thing to ever happen to me health wise and its not going away any time soon. I feel like I am going crazy... I just want to be better!

So I could sure use some prayers if ya have any extra's....

I pray you all have a great Hoiday weekend...!

  9. Oh friend I'm so sorry to hear this bad news. I sure hope the Dr. gets a handle on this. The best Dr. to go to though is Dr. Jesus, He knows all about your situation and I will keep telling Him all about your situation. Keep encouraged girlfriend. Tie a knot at the end of the rope and hang on. When it looks the darkest the sun is ready to break through.

    Hope you have a good weekend. If the Dr. gives you too much antibiotic maybe you should ask him about Cdif. Sure wouldn't want you to get that junk.


  10. Sorry to hear about what you are going through.
    Sending up prayers.

  11. Oh my, it seems you have been having a time of it. I sure hope some antibiotics will kick this infection for you. I pray that you get this under control and you are back to normal soon.
    Take care and enjoy this holiday weekend.
    Country at heart

  12. oh Tonya, first of all I had no idea that was how they did the surgery and 2ndly..i hope those meds do the trick this time..I will certainly keep you in my prayers that you heal quickly and get back to your sweet sassy self again.;)
