Just wanted to let everyone know how I am doing.
In case some of you don't know I have been battling a non-healing wound from my rectum/anus removal since June of LAST year. I will refresh you guys on my treatments and progress.
I had tried all of the treatments available from the hospital. (Calcium algenate, Silverdine, wound vac etc...)
The wound was about 6cm deep and then went to over 7cm.. and hadn't healed whatsoever. I saw 3 wound care nurses and my surgeon... My surgeon then sent me to plastic and reconstructive surgery. The new surgeon said there wasn't much he could do as far as reconstructing it because if I am not healing now, the surgery might fail. He put me back on silverdine and that didnt' do anything either.
I ended up doing a lot of research online and found a product called Microcyn and read people raving about how it was healing their non-healing wounds. I asked my Dr for a prescription and I started using it in July. Within a few weeks I could feel the wound getting slightly smaller.
I just went to the Dr on Friday where they measured it and it is now 3.5Cm!!!
Looks like it's working, slowly but surely.
I can't wait to get my life back. This not being able to sit, having to be packed and not being able to work thing is killing me.
Anyways just thought I would update in case anyone was wondering.
