So I had my appt. at the wound center this AM- the nurse said my rectal wound looked fabulous, wonderful... no depth at all, it's totally superficial. She gave me some alginite stuff to pack it with- although it's really shallow, so I can't really pack it too well. I go back in about 5-6 weeks just to re-check. I'm SO pleased! It's hard to gauge the healing yourself, especially if you have no idea what to be on thelookout for!
