Ugh, I have just been catching up on blogs and feel so guilty about my super bad eating week(end) from hell. It all started on Wednesday (yup 4 days ago) when my sister and brother-in-law came into town. Drinking and eating commenced at once. I ate way too much on Thursday and haven't stopped since.
As you can see from the photo, I am still have big issues with my port. I called my doctor again yesterday because I am still have a ton of pain and my incision looks bad. He said he is certain it is a seroma (fluid trapped below the incision) and is not an infection. He asked if I wanted him to have one of his people meet me at the hospital or if I just wanted to wait until Tuesday and he could drain it. The hospital is an hour away and my family is in town so decided to just wait, though I am not sure if that was the best choice. He said to put hot compresses on it and try to get it to drain.
I have been on a double dose of antibiotics for a week now (prescribed on Sunday when I went in). This has been a disaster. It is so painful and I just don't know how it is every going to heal. All this crap hasn't helped me in keeping motivated either and exercise is pretty much impossible because it causes too much friction.
My plan of attack is to focus on getting back on track tomorrow and making good choices with food. I have come so far and have done it pretty much on my own so I know I can continue being successful. I just fear I am headed for another port revision.
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!
