Sound of Silence

The vacuum dressing has gone!
The Consultant was not around today so Maria took this picture on a mobile phone and mailed to him for review. He then called back and discussed it with Maria while one of his colleagues had a look at it.

The skin graft seems to have taken OK over most of the wound. On the photo the "string vest" is the graft and I am told this is a great result although it will need to look a bit more like skin before I am able to see it. This has now been covered with a light dressing to protect it.

The donor site has been dressed again and is still a good deal more painful than the grafted wound.

Back again next Tuesday.
