Hi! My name is Jen and I had a BR is June 2013. I had an anchor scar with almost 12 pounds taken off total. After a 5 day stay in the hospital (I'm American, but they Tricared me to a German PS) I came home and immediately came down with 103 fever and a hole under my left breast. My American wound care specialist said it was so big you could fit a soda can inside of it. We have used wound vacs, silver alginate dressings, packing, not packing and a second debridement and this wound will just not close. True, it has gotten smaller, but it is still 5 inches deep and three inches wide. The pain is so intense....I see a pain specialist who has me on oxycodone ir, gabepentin, and trazadone. I've never smoked and I am not diabetic. I'm at my wits end, my entire LIFE revolves around this stupid wound. Is there something I'm missing? Any suggestions? Anyone else with a wound that won't close. BTW I've been tested for every autoimmune disorder under the sun. Thanks for reading!
