Confused on Why or How I Got an Infection That Left Me with a Huge Hole In my Belly - New Orleans, LA

I had a tummy tuck and lipo done about 3weeks ago...

I had a tummy tuck and lipo done about 3weeks ago and it took two weeks for the drains to be removed and I also had a black scar almost like a burn that the Dr said he want to watch closely.On the day the drains were removed I ended up with wound vac and a 2" deep 4"long and 4" wide hole not to mention now it seem that a small section near the hold is very soft to touch,as if I poke it,it will burst. I was told the area where the hold is was an Infection and the tissue had died and it all had to be removed to heal I was also told it now seems to be no sign of infection and that the wound vac help the healing process much faster I'm so sad and upset and a strong depression has come on not sure if it was worth it as of yet if this can heal properly and fast I would say it was worth it but as of now feel a Little regret

Ok it's been almost six weeks since my infection...

Ok it's been almost six weeks since my infection and me being cut open again I must say I'm doing much better I can say that even though I still have the wound vac on but I can just feel my strenght coming back as before my hold has closed up tremendously and I'm so happy about that I'm going on a vacation trip in about 3 more weeks hoping it be completely close by then but I will have to just wait and see will update pic soon

Sorry to hear your predicament! How were you taught to take care of things? My dr is having me wash with a medical antiseptic soap for a week beforehand and also start antibiotics before the surgery. I am so worried about infection also!

I did all the same and I still develop an infection but everyone is different so don't worry you'll be fine
