I have had 3 surgeries in 6 months and am having another in 2 weeks they say the main reason im not healing is diabetes. The initial surgery was for a hernia the seconnd for the mesh from the hernia and the third for an abcess under my belly button, in between this time i wore a wound vac for 10 weeks. i am beyond frustrated, if the main cause of not healing is diabetes and a slight over weight (15-20)pounds at most i am so tired of being bed ridden that has what has caused the weight gain as you can see from my pic. My next surgery is to remove a mass of scar tissue that is peotruding from my belly button which i hope doesnt cause ant complications again and cause use of the wound vac again. HELP is there any one else who has experienced numerous surgeries and they say you dont heal because you are a diabetic???
