New Medical Problem....

Damn. Having a new problem that started early Monday morning. One of my previously healed surgery incisions, the one on my side by my ribs, opened up and started bleeding again.

WebMD didn't have any advice based on the symptoms I entered, but I had better luck on WrongDiagnosis.com:

Needless to say, I'm pretty impressed with WrongDiagnosis.com and its attention to religio-mystic grammar, even though it didn't provide any treatment options. 

My dog is concerned.

UPDATE: I stayed up too late last night and watched "The Endurance," a documentary about Ernest Shackleton's 1914 expedition to Antarctica. I've read so much about the golden age of exploration that I should have recognized what is happening to me as a symptom of scurvy. 
So, I've got it narrowed down to either stigmata or scurvy. Hey, that's not any more crazy than anything else that's happened to me.... I will replenish the vitamin C sources in my ship's stores to address the scurvy. Not sure how to deal with stigmata.
