I had an op for a blocked bowel two weeks ago caused by adhesions from my hysterectomy. I came home yesterday with a vac machine that removes liquid from the wound, which has split open. Has anyone else had one of these? Also, the pain is much worse than when I had my hysterectomy, probably due to the open wound, and last night getting out of bed to go to the loo, caused so much agony that I was seriously considering incontinence pads!!!!!!!! This is an indication of how low I am feeling.
What I am looking for is reassurance that the machine will work, and an indication of how long this pain will last.
