So where the VNS is in my chest, there is now a little ulcer directly on top of the skin above where the stimulator is coming out of the chest. The red area is larger and visibly gets larger everyday. It makes me sick just looking at it. I have a dressing overtop of it, but it now just is always throbbing. Uggh. I hope I don't have to wait much longer for this to be resolved. I also don't want surgery to interrupt my running too much. I just don't know what to do about this. I wish this did not need to happen at all. I wish it would all just go away.
