Thanks for the message. I saw my surgeon today, and he debrided the entire wound. There was a lot of necrotic tissue, and he feels that there is actually no infection. Surprise there. He is not ready to remove the mesh yet, but rather will debride the wound twice a week and continue with the VAC therapy. He feels that surgery to remove the mesh will be a last resort, but made it clear that he may have to do so. He also says he has seen this in Crohn's patients before, but only in one case did he have to do revisional surgery. Which was kind of a relief to me. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
