I am not dealing with this incision very well mentally. I can change the dressings ok, but having to put the ointment on it is really freaking me out. I can't really tell if the incision is healing because of the dead tissue built up on top of it. The ointment I am putting on is supposed to "eat" the dead tissue away. It is a pretty slow eater apparently. I can't stand to deal with it. I should of had them sign me up for the visiting nurse service. I may end up having to go the hospital to have them clean all the dead stuff off. I am worried that the wound is tunneling underneath the dead stuff. I have seen some pretty nasty sores and wounds working at the nursing home but it seems different and freakier when it is on me!
