Well, it's been 6 weeks since my surgery. It really has been a slow recovery. I'm a little disappointed. The doctor said a small portion of the incision is completely healed, but the other portion is still open. I feel like I'm doing everything like I'm supposed to - keeping it dry, clean, and using a fan on it. However, I still can't sit for long because it's very tender. It stings sooo bad when I pee. The doctor gave me some barrier cream, but it actually makes it sting MORE!!! Do you have any suggestions to help with this? I'm still having drainage. What makes others heal so quickly?
