Well like I said, in August it had finally closed up so no more. I thought things were finally looking up. Well at the beginning of December the area started really hurting again so I went to the doctor and he said there was a lot of scar tissue and that I would need surgery to have it cleaned up. The pain continued to get worse. Like really worse.
On Friday I noticed a quarter-sized knot to the side of the wound area. I showed my mom when she stopped by to visit. Well Tuesday it was really hurting so I had Jeremy come take a look and feel around and well that quarter sized knot had grown into the size of a baby's fist. I called the doctor right away. He gave me some low dose pain medicine and I go back Thursday for an ultrasound.
I'm starting to feel like this is happening all over again. I can't do it again. I just can't. I meet with a surgeon on the 10th but depending on the ultrasound I may be doing something different.
Please pray that we figure this thing out. I really want 2014 to a good and healthy year.

The awful wound vac....wouldn't wish this thing on anyone.
Imagine that thing being pulled out of your insides? Does. not. feel. good.
