Open wound after TRAM op


Open wound after TRAM op

Hi folks

I had a TRAM on 29th June, which I am DELIGHTED with and in general, have healed quite well.
However, there is a part, almost under my tummy button which is still raw and quite open(1 1/2 inch long). I think its mainly cause its affected by every movement and isnt getting the same opportunity to heal.

Ive seen my GP who says it will heal eventually, but anyone else had this and how long did it take?
My sis who is a nurse has suggested manuka dressings so has anyone had any success with this method?

Cheers ladies!
