Had surgery 3times just had a wise excision.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi I'm 20 had my first operation on the 6th of March, just a small excision, had an infection in the wound for a number of weeks. Had the second operation on the 9th of April to get rid of the infection they thought that would be it, they swabbed it still had an infection in the wound, on the 1st of May I had another operation this was the wide excision and they cut me really deep, they said that this would most probably be the last operation. I had a wound of 6cm deep downwards, today I had it probed it was 3.5cm so I am on the recovery but I was just wondering if anyone else had the wide excsion? And how are they doing now... Thanks smile

    I've had the excision done, at least twice. I've had 15 ops over the last 8 years and am waiting on the next. I hope you don't have the problems I've had as I have had Plastic surgery the last 2 times and it made it so much worse. This is a grossly underestimated condition that can ruin people.

    I don't want to scare you so i wont say what I went through. Good luck. I have had it taken down to the muscle twice and if you have a vacuum dressing on when you wake up then it was fairly big.
