Customer Question

I had a major surgery in March of this year and in Junei had to be reopened due to gangrene. I was left opened with a wound vac. Unfortunately the wound vac didn't work so I am doing wet to dry. I pack the wound everyday and a month ago I ended having sepsis. Was in hospital for 6 days. When discharged there was no smell what so ever. About two weeks ago I started having a horrible order... a lot of drainage and hurting everywhere. Do you possibly think that the gangrene is back

It seems that there is an infected wound which is giving rise to such discharge and pain. This definitely need an examination by your surgeon at the earliest

Can you please tell where exactly was the gangrene and what was your initial surgery ?

Good luck
