Another bout in hospital

You may have noticed that I've not posted much in the last few weeks.  Part of the reason has been that I've had another wound infection and had to go back into hospital for another debridement.

It turned out there had been tunneling and undermining of my wound.  A structural engineering problem?  As far as I can make out, it is a bit like that.  There is a cavity underneath the regrown tissue my wound.  Just as well, there wasn't a cave in or roof collapse.

Anyway after 5 nights in hospital I was discharged with a vac dressing and antibiotics.   I hope this means that my wound will finally close soon.  It has been going on for far too long.
