Why did I develop necrosis. How should it be treated?
I developed necrosis to the skin flap behind both ears. I have never smoked. The area is black and hard. Should this area be debrided or left to heal untouched. Any idea why this happened. Surgery went well and the flaps had great circulation. Good capillary refill was noted and was assessed at least every 12 hours. I had severe pain in my jaw ear area in the 1st 2 days with the tight wrapping. When the wrapping was changed had 3 sec refill. So what happened? How would you treat this.
