Some of you may remember about 1-1/2 years ago I was writing posts about the procedures and follow up care I was having to get done on several blood vein valves which failed, causing blood to pool in my lower legs and eventually bursting through the skin and shooting a stream 1′ – 1-1/2′ out.  The main issue is it took almost a year for wound therapy to clear it up to where I didn’t have to wear hospital compressions, I was able to use my compression socks. 

“Here I Go Again” is this posts title due to yet another blood vein-valve failing, having to be removed and then having issues by absorbing the fluid in my body and there by expanding in size.  Apparently this is a common issue with patients who have edema, which the Webster’s Dictionary defines as: “an abnormal infiltration and excess accumulation of serous fluid in connective tissue or in a serous cavity —called also dropsy.”  This I obtained from the Webster Dictionary app on Sunday, 11/11/16, 7:47am.

Photo #1: Is the wound on 12/9/16, this is prior to them cleaning it up before putting on a compression wrap.  The drops of liquid you see is a topical pain killer their trying to see if it will deaden the nerves endings which are open.  I am hoping this works, biting into my wallet is getting costly, wallets are not cheap.


Photo #2:  This is the wound Site not even one week ago, pre-cleanup also. 


Pictures #3 & #4: The surgery (wound) site on 11/29/16.  As you can see there is a large difference between pre-cleaning and post-cleaning. The white paste you see will only adhere to “good skin” and not a wound. 

  • Picture #5 & #6: This is the site one month  after my Procedure (10/19/16) and one week after taking the surgical compression wrap off.       

The last two sites this happened to, they took almost a year to heal completely. I’m hoping and praying with everything I have that this one heals a whole lot faster. For now I am scheduled to go in once a week to have the compression wrap (CW) removed, the site cleaned (OUUUUUUUUCH!!!!!) and a new CW put on. Another week down and who know how many more to go. #woundcare #icareconsulting, #icaretalk.com
