Well, Not Quite Finished, Yet.

Update August 26, 2016

106477The sutures are removed, but a day later and I woke to find blood on the back of my t-shirt. Rick treated the small break-through bleeding with aquaphor and a small bandaid. If it continues to bleed, (being one of the signs of cancer, bleeding that doesn’t heal is a concern) we’ll try some of the formula that the dermatologist prescribed once before when my arm’s biopsy continued to bleed longer than it ought to have. I’ll let you know how that goes.

 

 

Update August 27, 2016

Uh oh … more bleeding last night. The incision without its sutures seeems to be spreading apart. It’s possible that the swelling on the sides will dimish with time, but I’ll call the surgeon and ask him to take a look at it early this week. And, I think I see a remaining suture at the very bottom of the  incision…

Four weeks later, day two after sutures were removed, the site is still bleeding. The red spots around the outer edge are irritations from the bandage adhesive. 

The incision is about 2 inches in length. No bruising this time, as there was plenty of skin right there eto close the wound.
