It’s 11:11 p.m. on January 11th and I am a little concerned about the healing progress of my myomectomy surgical incision. Let’s just say it’s being stubborn.
Over the last three weeks, I have survived and itching with bated impatience and restricted movements. The wound has presented itself at different stages, more time it looks infected. (As I can’t see it directly, my phone’s camera has provided me with the video and still shots. At times, I want to pass out because of how distressing the surgery wound looks.) I have been moderately careful to treat the wound like a dainty newborn.
As always, when I have an experience and I don’t understand it, I do some research. My intuition was proven right as I read the testimonials of women who experience a rash – atopic dermatitis – around their surgical incision. Mine was more like a 7 inch cut. Anyway, many of these women shared that the rash resulted from an allergic reaction to either the tape or glue used during the surgery or to cover the wound.
I think mine is a most unfortunate situation as my wound is closer to my genealogical legacy. Women will understand my distress, some of them anyway.
More information is provided in my book. See details below.
