Burns after surgery

What are the burns from? What have you done to help them heal?

Hi Jacey … I had a diathermy burn during surgery.  It is when they use an instrument to cut the skin but the earth attachment fell off my leg??  I had surgery on 30 Dec and radiotherapy starts 16 Feb … and the scab from burn fell off the other day.  Hope this helps x

Thanks Kimjane. I had surgery on 26th Jan and am waiting for my follow-up appointment. I’ve had surgery several times before for different things, but this has been the most painful!
