Nurse called with my CT results today… apparently it was a good thing that I took the antibiotics because I have a fluid collection behind the main incision. I already had an appointment scheduled for tomorrow so she and the doctor are going to come up with a game plan. If there’s a spot that’s still open the dr may be able to drain it in his office, otherwise they’ll send me down to interventional radiology for an ultrasound guided drain placement. Sounds fancy.
No big. Except that I have a HUGE phobia of things (needles, tubes, pins, etc.) sticking in/out of skin. Just thinking about it makes me want to puke. I’ve gotten better with needles but tubes have always been my bigger issue… I’d almost rather have surgery again, I’m that big of a baby about it.
