Just a note to mention that, when i was 6 weeks post op from my
Hysterectomy,i started having huge lesions appear on my incision...then
they started popping up other places..just over and over and over
again...all in all i think i had 13 of these horrid things..which each
was drained and the fluid tested and of course all of them turned out to
be staph..and every single time i would have a a round of vancomycin,
but along about the 4th or fifth round of these lesions, the Dr who i
was seeing in the ER ...lanced 2 lesions this day and drained them and
cleaned them out really well , and low and behold in the first one which
was about the size of a small lemon the Dr pulled out little wad which
turned out to be 23 inches of suture material hmm.
Of course we couldnt blame the suture string for the repeated staph
infections but it certainly made me wonder what else managed to get in
to that incision the day of my Hysterectomy.
Eventually they got all of this mess cleaned up and the lesions
stopped...some Drs called them incisional abcesses some called them
Then after i had my first adesiolysis they started treating me right off
the bat with vancomycin while i was in the hospital and tetracycline
when i went home..and so i had only 2 of the little lesions pop up about
3 weeks post op .
and then they did the same thing after my second adhesion surgery...and
then i had none but to this day...my incisions from the Hyst and the 1st
adhesion surgery..are super tender and really bumpy and just really
gross looking...msotly because of all of the little cuts from the
lesions i guess...I have had nothing but misery since i had that darn
Anyway i sure hope you get treated soon and get rid of this mess...i
know you too must be suffering terribly.
God Bless You
