As we all know, having WLS is a life changing experience. As we all know, you can have complicatons from it. I have now had a few. In July, Ihad a hernia repair, mesintary defect repair and found out that I have a suture granuloma. I am having a difficult time still keeping soft foods and liquids down. Last week, my navel started hurting and by Sunday, I was in the ER at Atl Med Center. I was running a 102 fever and had a large lump at my navel that hurt like the devil. Well, low and behold I have an abcess from my surg in July. I was in the hospital overnight on antibiotics and went home on Monday. On Tuesday my abcess decided to start drainning, YUCK, while I was at work. Needless to say it scared the CRAP out of me! ( seeing a liquid come out of your belly button is not fun) It has almost gone completely away now, Thank God, but it does remind oneself of what I have gone thru and what I will continue to go thru on this journey.
