I have had surgery twice in the last 16 weeks and have been hooked to a wound vac and bed ridden for 6 weeks. I am trying to be optimistic but they say that it will be anywhere from 2 - 4 weeks longer on the vac. The visiting nurse comes twice a week to change the vac bandage and to draw my blood to check my blood cell levels. I am on pain medication that makes me sleepy, but all in all im tired of being stuck in the house. The only good things are i took everyone heres advice and have been eating a low carb high protein diet and my BGs are running quite well, thank you to everyone for your messages of concern it gives me hope!!!!
