Good news from my Doc’s PA. It is NOT a systemic infection. She suspects that this was initially caused by irritating the sutures by taking the tape off and replacing it whenever it looked messy. The professionals aren’t worried so maybe I should relax a little bit.
Dr. Elliott has been traveling (on a plane) today which explains why I haven’t gotten a reply to the email yet. Patti, his PA, is going to get in touch with him and talk to him once he’s had a chance to look at the photos. So it’s being handled.
I’ll update with Part 8 as I get more information.
