Just an update. I went to the doctor on the 16th of October and got thrown into the hospital on an emergency basis as my right thigh was not doing well at all. The surgeon scheduled me for an I&D procedure for the next day. During that surgery, they opened up and worked on the thigh. They also manipulated my left knee and right shoulder to get a sense of how things were going there. On Friday, they went back into the OR and did a second I&D and opened the thigh up even more. The result of these two procedures is that I've got a deep thigh wound as large as my fist. That wound goes all the way to the femur. All the bad gunk has been removed and the wound is packed with a HUGE amount of Iodoform sterile gauze packing. Like almost five bottles worth of the stuff. Here are some pictures taken on Monday 10/22/12, at the doctor's office, as they unpack the wound. I apologize in advance if these pics are too graphic:
