Things have been going pretty well since my resection 6 weeks ago, but I now have a red circle around the top 3/4 of my incision. It's a ring around the incision, ~inch wide, and it's lightly red, hard to the touch, warm and tender. I just had a friend look at it who's a plastic surgeon and he thought it was cellulitis, maybe due to an abscess that formed around a suture to (worst case scenario) a fistula. Hopefully I'll be able to see my surgeon tomorrow. I would really like to get better, rather than worse. It's always something...
