I got bit by a spider roughly 4 months ago. Created an infection that caused the entire back of my head to swell up and release liquid (pretty much burst). Well after seeing 4 different doctors and being prescribed to six different medications I found myself in the emergency room with the back of my head in absolute pain. So I was referred to a plastic surgeon.
Today I went in and he cut it open (while I was awake, they numbed me) and removed the infected tissue. Iíve never felt more nauseous in my entire life. I nearly vomited twice so he had to make me lay back and put my legs up. Well after 45 minutes it was done and I came home.
But hereís the fun part. He put a 4Ēx4Ē piece of cloth in my head to allow my cut to heal properly. This has to be pulled out and replaced twice a day.. And the back of my head wonít be numb. I so do not look forward to that. After a week weíll stop doing the packing and weíll let it heal on itís own without stitches. My neighbor just left to pick up my pain medication now, so I think Iím going to lay down. Just felt like sharing.
