I'm tired at the moment, so I'm just going to repost what I posted to the Dr. M list - more details later.
For those of you following my ongoing saga with the seroma issue,
things just went from bad to worse. I went to an Urgent Care last
week, and they gave me a referral to a wound care clinic. I just saw
the surgeon at the wound care clinic, and he debrided the wound down
2-3" to the hernia mesh, and has told me that the internal sutures
and hernia mesh are infected. He packed the wound with salt wick
dressings, will arrange for daily repacking, but says that it's not
likely that the wound will heal on its own and that I'll most likely
need to be reoperated on in 2 weeks to remove the infected mesh,
insert a cadaver mesh, after which he'll need to leave the incision
open with a wound vac for it to heal from the inside out.
