I just can’t bring myself to show you the first picture I sent to my surgeon. Seriously, it really has to be one of the grossest visuals I’ve ever seen. I really can’t believe it was actually on me. Imagine the bottom picture with a ton more of the yellowish snotty stuff in it.
I’ve put them in reverse order, so you get the best to worst.
August 21, 2009. More than 4 months after surgery, digger is finally closed, leaving me with a small indentation. It is truly amazing to see the way the body heals itself. BTW, this scaring is a little worse than the rest but it’s basically what I have all the way around my breasts. And the ripples are the lovely stretch marks that were on my belly from pregnancy.
August 10, 2009. An itty bitty hole. Nothing like what it started out as!
July 2, 2009. What an amazingly healthy pink wound:) I am now starting to believe it will heal!
June 8, 2009. Dr. D slices me open a bit more to let digger drain. Lovely huh!
May 28, 2009. Not at it’s worst, but as close as I can get and not feel bad I have damaged you in some way from seeing this…..lol! I’m pretty sure this was after the first debridement. You can see the yellow and white stuff. It was full of yellow and white stuff prior to this pic.
