Possessed vocalist Jeff Becerra recently underwent flap surgery and is unfortunately dealing with an infection related to the procedure. According to Becerra in a recent Instagram post, he's taking antibiotics and is hoping the infection will clear up soon.
"Week eight, post surgery didn’t happen exactly the way we wanted. Dealing with an infection that popped up from where three incision points met. I’m hoping that with the help of strong antibiotics I can finally be ok for the first time in 11 years but it’s challenging to say the least. I’m staying here until I am healed or I run out of options.
"The US Joint Commission on Patient Safety estimates that more than 2.5 million patients in acute-care facilities suffer from pressure ulcers, and that 60 000 die from pressure ulcer complications each year. #jeffbecerra #possessed #wheelchair #musician #disabilityawareness"
For those unfamiliar, flap surgery is a type of surgery where tissue is moved from one part of the body to another with an intact blood supply. We wish Becerra all the best in his recovery.
