For those who have not followed my blogs detailing my surgery adventures…..or misadventures, I’ll quickly give you a recap. I had Knee replacement surgery in September. After the surgery I noticed blood on the back of my leg, and a piece of skin hanging there. I notified the nurse. She had no clue how the hole in my leg got there and supplied a Band-aid. Weeks later, the wound began to annoy me, aching and stinging. Especially during physical therapy. I told my therapist. They notified my doctor via e-mail. I also sent a note via our patient portal. No word from the doctor. I got the impression he was ignoring this issue.
I ended up going to my primary care physician. He prescribed a salve with antibiotics. It seemed to soothe and begin to heal.
As you see from the picture. This was no scratch. It is a HOLE in my leg. I am envisioning a flash mob happening during surgery…Was there dancing? I don’t know???? But how did I end up with a hole in my leg? I know it is not a life threatening wound….. but If this guy did cut me, he should OWN it! He should have TREATED it!
I went to my Primary Care Physician this week and he noticed it was not fully healed. I had to have blood work done! Fortunately it came out negative for infection. But I should not have the sore, and am really upset that no one will fess up. This is but one of the many issues with the doctor I chose. So I am going to have a second opinion on the general leg pain issue in general this Wednesday, 01/15. This time I am going with an Emory doctor. Wish I had done that from the getgo! I will also be interested in what he has to say about my mysterious sore.
