I was gonna start my 6 rounds of folfox this Monday, but my belly button is not healing well. I have this continuous discharge coming out. The surgeon says that a piece of skin is dying and it has to peal off. But it feels like that this clear yellow liquid is coming from the layers of skin about the size of a quarter. I'm been treated by a visiting nurse every other day, but it's not getting better. I called the surgeon and next week I have to go back and currette out the area. It's no big deal and it's not infected,but I have postpone the chemo, because that may slow down the healing even more.
Otherwise doing ok,can sit more and more even drive short distances. A little tired of being sore and sick. It has been 6 months after all. But every day is a better day, so at least we are moving in the right direction.
