Suture reaction? Infected incisions... Pics



Recommended Posts

So I've seen tons of sutures in my life. Some of what you are experiencing is normal. Slight red eyes and small drainage happens, usually not 2 weeks out. But I can't see it for my self. Please oh your your doctor. Infected Abdominal incisions are really bad and call cause long term damage and spread into your belly. They also can be very difficult to heal. Your already going to be nutritionaly compromised for healing. You really do not want it to get out of hand. Go to your md.

Yes if you have wounds that are not healing go to the doctor..... the bruises are from the heprin shots (a blood thinner) they gave us all and several of them... the brusies take a long time to go away but should not be painful!!

@nifty22

So glad you are calling your doctor. As one responder replied, be honest about about your surgery. At my 2 week checkup, I was healed.

Keep us posted on your condition. You definitely have an infection.

Definatly tell your dr.!
It may be as you said, a reaction to whatever they used but you do NOT want it to get any more infected or you may have more serious issues on your hands!
Keep us posted and good luck.

Chavon & Nifty,
Please, please, please see a doctor. What you are showing in the pictures is not inconsequential! I agree with Rita and am a nurse (ICU) also. You do not want to risk post-operative sepsis. Gut sepsis is the worst! You do not have the resources in your bodies to handle this without help. Please post back to let us know how you're doing. Please also feel free to PM me if you wish.

I just want to say you need to see a Dr. ASAP. you knew something wasn't right as you sutured yourself. What else did they miss? This is a very dangerous situation. Major surgery always has risks. I had a c section that weeped for a couple of days and I went back to my Dr. She has to clean, pack and visiting nurse daily. This is actually my first post and I am actually very concerned. Please see a Dr.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
