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