I had a successful resurfacing with Dr De Smet 17 days ago and
am feeling very strong.
While I was in Belgium my wound began to look red in a couple of
places and I was put on anti-biotics for 8 days to prevent infection.
There was one stitch to be taken out at around 14 days and I asked a
friend who is a British nurse to come and do that for me. She came on
Thursday but was not happy with the way my wound looked and suggested
I went to the local medical centre to have the stitch out and for a
doctor to look at it.
I went there yesterday. They removed the stitch but said I had
an 'inflation' I thought maybe they meant swelling, but then wondered
if they meant inflammation. They gave me more antibiotics and I have
to go back on Monday. (Will also take someone with me who speaks
better Greek I think!)
The nurse prodded and scraped and squeezed my wound before dressing
it. It has been quite tender ever since, and I can no longer sit
comfortably. The dressing has blood on it so I am going to ask my
friend to change it today.
I've emailed Dr De Smet to see if he has any advice, but has anyone
on here had similar problems?
