So yes. We're at camp this week and everyone else is having a great time swimming and doing whatever. Me, not so much. I realize that I'm only 2 weeks post surgery but it doesn't make it any easier sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else have fun. When it came time to move the shed this morning, I was pretty much useless and in the way. Same with building the new one. I couldn't even handle sitting on the sidelines and watch. Just sucks being only 41 and feeling 90.

This job would probably be a good one if the boss wasn't such an ass. I think he gets off on being a jerk to his employees. I am being nice right now because I'm on FF but I'd like to tell him a few choice words.

A few times in the past, but that's nursing.
Bad and good administrators and directors.
Mostly good.

Looking better. Even the spot that opened up. The rest of the staples come out next week. I'm slowly able to get around more but have to watch with bending over and any lifting. If I do anything the mesh inside pulls and burns.

So yesterday I had to make an unplanned visit to see my surgeon to get antibiotics as once again the incision is infected. I'm on a heavy dose of antibiotics for the weekend and have to report back monday morning. Thankfully a friend of ours is a nurse out at camp and has a good supply of dressings. Here we go again. As soon as those staples come out the thing is going to open up like last time. That means nurses coming to the house 3 times a week for the next few months. Yay. Just what I wanted.

What's she cleansing and dressing it with?
I'd do purified water, followed by betadine swab x2, air for a bit then mepore.

She used sterile swabs with peroxide. She also put some steristrips over the wound to hold it together till Monday. Not much else anyone can do right now. It's the same thing I went through in 2017 after my first hernia surgery. Within two weeks it became infected and eventually opened up taking months to heal. Guess that means no swimming this summer. Or boating. And minimal atving with the side by side.

Last time, my entire abdomen was red and swollen. The 4 inch long incision opened up and was oozing puss for months. Nothing surprises me anymore. I have to laugh at it now. It's been 3 years of hell with one thing after another.

Steri-strips do make more sense to have it open air a bit.
Thank God you have antibiotics.
Keep that thing clean and take it easy.
Sheesh.
