Tunneling is when the wound isn't just a straight line wound but it channels off to the right or left, up or down. It's super important that the wound be packed properly or it will not heal from the inside out. Having that wound properly packed with IODAFORM guaze (iodine based) worked best for me.
Good luck; mind totally healed in about 3 weeks.

I will keep praying for you. Hope this operation is the end to your trials, but I am afraid if you are like me it is just the start of a nightmare. Sandi

Hey t3 years ago i had a stroke while doing my hair an d passed out on the hot curlingiron. I don't know how long I was passes out, but the burn turned black and I think I caught MRSA from the wound care center. There was a golf ball size hole in my shoulder where they cut out the dead skin. I took it a little over a year to hear. There's a medical tape called Hyperfix that reall hold your bandages on. I was on Bcatrin too. I broke out 3 more times after the 1st episode.
I hope you feel better. Sincerely, Stephanie
