Patient Comments: Necrotizing Fasciitis - Treatments

What was the treatment for your necrotizing fasciitis?

Comment from: Nina, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: November 06

I was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis after having an emergency caesarian section. I had 4 surgeries to remove the infected skin and tissue and am now scheduled for surgery to close the wound. I was in hospital for 3 weeks and it has taken 3 months to close the wound enough for this last surgery.

I had 10 surgical procedures until bk amputation was done. Was in hospital for 3 months 4 days. Prior to discharge a skin graft was done over the area which required a large fasciotomy and removal of 1/3 of the vastus medialis.
