I hoped I wouldnt have to start a thread in this area or the forum, but.....
The Weds evening before xmas, I noticed an angry looking area at the end of my left (crease) incision & also noticed a tiny bit of clear discharge on my bra.
This really freaked me out, I check my boobies & incisions at least twice daily & this just came out of the blue :/ So, I called up work & told them I wasnt going in the next day & decided to get an emergency app to get it looked at.
So, the next morning I called the clinic & spoke to my nurse. She said to use a dry antiseptic spray, keep the area clean & as I was 4 days away from giving up my 24/7 6 week stint in a support bra, to go braless so I wouldnt make it worse from the rubbing. I was told to give it over xmas to see if it settled down.
In the following days, my bf kept checking it & cleansing it. Then he managed to remove an ingrown hair & the area seemed to heal.
It seemed fine over new year & I had been braless for as much as poss.
Yesterday morning after showering, I looked in the mirror & saw that it had flared up again & had a yellow bit in it.
Christian (bf) took a look for me, cleansed the area & applied a little pressure either side.
All this yucky, thick dark yellowy brown goo blobbed out
I got right on the phone to my clinic & got myself an emergency app last night. The nurse took a look for me but I think Christian did a good job cleaning it out as there was nothing left to see apart from a bit of a scabby area that had formed.
The nurse wanted to take a swab but there was nothing to swab so she told me to keep the area clean & if it filled up again, to go to my general doctor to get it checked. She suggested getting swabbed for MRSA as I came in contact with it while I was nursing my dad in hospital & I could be carrying it without knowing.
She explained it was likely to be a stitch inside which may not have dissolved properly.
Im due back on the 18th for another post check.
This morning after my shower, I noticed some more discharge. I stuck on a small plaster & got dressed for work.
When Christian checked this evening, more gunk came out & a bit of a hole was left behind when he cleansed it
Im going to see how it is in the morning. It looked lots better this evening but stings a bit.
I have a heavy work load at the spa over the next few days with lots of massage & altho Ive told them whats going on, they havent moved any of my treatments
Sorry, this is just a long winded way of asking if anybody has had this, what happened or what could I do??
