It's been one month now since my surgery and my belly button is still infected. Worse now tonight my right bottom port started oozing pink foam. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's not a good thing.
Called the doctor and she made an appointment for first thing Monday so there's that.
I think the being thrown violently into NIGHT DAY NIGHT DAY NIGHT NIGHT DAY shift plus the 12 12 nights has really REALLY fucked me over with my healing. Welp only 3 more weeks of it and I will never be doing it again Haha cause I'll be dead Haha Haha sob
Can you speak to HR?
Also what port? (Are you part mech and I didn't know it?).
You need to see your Dr for sure.
I used to use Hydrogen peroxide on the belly button incisions to clean them out - but that might not be recommended any longer? I don't think it promotes healing? Maybe a wash with the stuff that removes staph infections from the skin? Sold OTC. (As I recall you're allergic to betadine?).
It sounds awful.
