Hole in TT incision, has anyone had this?
By whatley1 on 02 May 2012
At month post op, I developed a hole about the size of a pencil top at my incision directly below my belly button. I freaked out because it was nasty draining and ugly, not to mention there was a hole in my stomach. I called my PS and he had me come in first thing the next morning. It was a stitch that my body did not disolve and it was my body's way of spitting it out. So now 2 months later I am still packing my hole with gauze strips twice a day and it 's gotten bigger and is very sore and irrittated. How long will it take this thing to heal up? I know it is suppose to heal from the inside out, but it has been two months and it looks the same. Am I doing everything I need to be doing, my PS just keeps saying have patience.
