Another Pothole bump in the road Plot-twist: More medical issues. (January 2019)

know what I hate? people who don’t mean what they say…
I have been fighting a wound on my back on my incision scar from my back surgery since May 2017; it closes 3/4 of the way, then it reopens due to a hyper granulate of scar-tissue or something. The Dr in wound care has tried everything from “packing” it, cauterizing it, going in and taking out what he thought was the problem. He is at a loss, so he asked the orthopedic if he’d see me and he said he would. Well now, when they try to schedule me an appointment, the orthopedist’s office says they cant because I have Medicaid when the doctor already said he’d see me! 😡 
So now they suggested, getting my medical records and going into the E.R. at the LSU hospital in Shreveport. The E.R. because the office is backed up for appointments. 
This thing has been a giant pain in the butt, oozing all the time, wearing gauze and paper tape or bandaids, or spray/washing my shirts due to the oozing, only using towels once after bathing which increases washings; plus maybe that’s why I am so much achier now. I don’t know, but man this crap better be taken care of by my wedding next year. 
In other news, I am being sent to an oncologist (just the word freaks me out because usually they are associated with cancer.) My white count has been high since May 2018 right after the procedure to clean up my wound, and my GP couldn’t figure out why. could it be the wound being infected or could I have cancer? I do bloodwork on the 17th. Keep me in prayers, thanks. 
All these medical issues are one reason I am sitting out this semester of college.
