It was infected and the doctor tried to cure it with a shitload of antibiotics but that obviously didn't work so he had to cut, squeeze and drain out fluid, sebaceous build up and blood. He then packed the little hole he made with gauze to allow fluid to drain and patched me up. Wednesday I had to go see him again to change the dressing.
|yes that is blood seeping out!|
I am on another week of antibiotics and painkillers and hopefully when I fly out to NZ on Monday night, I will be all recovered.
One thing though, it's been hard to accept that I can't do everything on my own and do require help to change the dressing on my back. So mum will be coming over each day to change the dressing after I have my shower. Humbling experience actually, to acknowledge that I am not superwoman and do need help......occasionally.
