Infected laceration
« on: April 09, 2012, 02:26:51 PM »
I know, eww. As many of you older members know, I'm a diabetic, and as such my healing is a lot slower than a normal human's is. I got a cut on my leg about 3-4 weeks ago that ended up getting infected pretty bad. We went to the ER about it last Thursday morning (SUCH a fun thing to do at 3AM -_-), and got a prescription for antibiotics and some scrubbing sponges to clean it out with. Long story short, the antibiotics and healing in general are taking a lot out of me, so I'm sleeping more. I'm still around, just not as much per diem.

And no, I'm not going to post a gross pic of the wound. ;p

I'm glad you're not posting a picture of the wound. XD

OUCH. That's nasty. I'm hoping you'll heal up soon.

Mee, too. This is the kind of thing is what causes the amputations diabetics end up with as a result of. Thankfully, I can block out some of the pain caused when my fiancee scrubs it, but it still hurts pretty bad.

Man, why do people only post on GU when they get nasty surgery or injuries... Ah well. Don't get addicted to prescription painkillers, and get well soon.

I didn't get any painkillers. I only got a prescription for the antibiotics, but that's it.

You may try flushing it with some peroxide.  Worked wonders when I jammed that razor blade in my hand.
And....ouch!  Good luck, man. o_o

I'm flushing it daily at least with peroxide and bactine, plus the srubbing sponges. I need to invest in some protein shakes to improve my healing.

Ouch, I have an idea of how much that must be tiring you out from what other injuries have done to me. That's only natural until the wound is healed.

Best of wishes man.

I'm wincing at the thought of the pain. Hope it gets healed fast :)

Actually, it hasn't been hurting much except for when my fiancee was scrubbing it. As it's progressed (slowly -.-), I've noticed increased sensation in general in my leg. For those not in the know about diabetic neuropathy, I'll explain. Poorly maintained diabetes over time can cause a condition (obviously) called diabetic neuropathy. It starts out with constant pain in the extremities, that ends up with the loss of feeling in them to the point that you can't actually feel injuries, and as the injuries get worse in condition, you don't notice the irritation from infection, so you don't know it's getting worse if you don't pay enough attention to them. The increase in pain I'm experiencing is actually a good thing in that I can actually feel it.

But yeah, no gangrene or anything like that. All limbs accounted for and healing along. :)

Oh, good! I'm glad you don't have diabetic neuropathy. That sounds REALLY nasty. x.x Feeling pain is a good thing because it's your body telling you that something is wrong with you. If you can't feel it, you could easily die from even simple wounds, I've heard.

Wait, that can't be good for me...

On topic, my grandmother lost both legs to diabetes a couple of years apart but was much better afterwards in terms of her health.  So if it has to be done, it has to be done.  I hope not for your sake.

Well, in the worst case scenario, you can capitalize on a threateningly salty looking pegleg acquisition.

But seriously, though. Don't lose your leg. Or your fingers. Pain is good.
