Well I am just updating some people on my dad. He is back in the hospital. He had what we thought was a pressure sore because he has been in so much pain. Well my mom took him to his treatment yesterday and had his oncologist look at it and he admitted him because he said it was a abcest and it needed to be surgically removed. Well dad was admitted yesterday and they got him right into surgery. Well when they got in there it was more then just a abcest. He has a tissue eating bacteria. He grew just in 2 days and the dr said this is the worst case they have ever seen. Its very rare. Well they went in and removed all the dead tissue. His incession is 4 inches wide and it goes from his rectum all the way up to his stomach. They had to take his scrotum because it was dead. so now he has a open incession. He has a temporary clostamy bag and later down the road they are going to put a wound vac on it to help it heal better. His stay in the hospital is 3 weeks and the healing proccess is going to be months. I wish bad things would stop happening to him but i know i have no control of it. I'm trying to take it one day at a time. The dr said yesterday that if he didnt have surgery yesterday he would of died last night. I'm so scared and im slowly starting to feel weak but i know i have to be strong for my family. Any suggestions??
