You must be bionic or something..

Or so said the Nurse last night at the Kaiser emergency room..

In a surprising turn of events, the surgical scar in the right hand had a small rip and pus started coming out.

Worried that the right hand was rotting on the inside, a trip to the hospital regular care ended up being redirected to ER.

Two hours later the doctor looked it up under a lens and lights and said

"your body is not degrading the bio-degradable sutures. instead it is attacking the small pieces left with white blood cells"

Apparently not uncommon!

They pulled out a small suture piece and cleaned it up and sent me home with antibiotics..

Interesting, to say the least!

Interesting! I'd had a similar experience with a suture some years ago- needed four hefty doses of antibiotics to clear up!
