On July 12th I went in for lap band surgery. My weight on surgery day was 292 pounds. The doctor made 5 entry points on my stomach (the port is on right side). The doctor used staples to close entry spots,and after 2 1/2 weeks the staples taken out.
Every entry closed up except the one where the port is. The cut is still open but is not red. There is puss leaking out into the gauze pad at a rate of about 2 tablespoons 2 times per day, sometimes 3 or 4 depending how active I am that day.
My medical history is as follows: m.S,,bi-poller, adhd, plates in r-hip, l-wrist, l-ankle, screws r-knee due to car accident on 2/9/09. Also had gallbladder removed years ago.
All of my medical problems are controlled with medication:
I have seen my PCP about this, and he prescribed an antibiotic for the hole in stomach which did not help!
My lap-band doctor is 2 hours away from my home in Houston, TX.
If you have any ideas why this is happening to me please share your thoughts!
