ok back home … i was running an errand with my husband before going to pick up the prescription for my surgical wound infection an hour or so after it was called in… during that the infection in my main wound site, well to put it mildly, drained rapidly while i was in the store… and some combination of the wound infection finally coming out, fever and some dehydration caused an altered mental state for a few hours leading me to be taken to the emergency room….

had a night filled with many ivs and iv attempts (blown veins, infiltrating ivs, very low flow etc) , bunch blood tests, multiple bags of fluids, multiple doses of iv antibiotics, a ct with contrast…. saw the surgeon and told to head home and see him monday as planned…

fun times

on a positive note i currently don’t feel intense pain getting up or sitting down… just discomfort and light pain..

oh the things we go through

Wow. I am so sorry you are going through that. That is uncommon less than 3%. My whole family are in the medical field. I looked it up because of that. Hopkins website stated that it can happen when you are touched by a contaminated caregiver or surgical instrument. Again, I am so sorry you had to go through that. default_sad.png&key=eede538cefacefd5b09bc3209f264a659ab0a07f9d0c9c28b43ddf136bc5059a

must have been in surgery since it was deep and the incision was still tightly glued until it popped

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
