I'm hoping someone can tell me if anyone's had anything similar to what's going on with me- My doc is even stumped....I had my surgery jan. 6th and now I have developed an infection. On Friday, I was a little more swollen, but figured I had just done too much. Then, on Saturday, I woke up to more swelling and redness up to about 2 inches above my incision and it was hot. He put me on Levaquin and just scratched his head and said, "if I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have believed it." THAT made me feel great! My incision has never been opened or anything. And now, I am having a lot of abdominal pain, even pain up to my rib cage and when I lay down and get up, it takes my breath away. I have called my doc again, but he doesn't come in until later today. I would really appreciater any response because I am getting worried about this. Why an infection now?
Thank you for your words of encouragement. That's one of the things i love about this site....Even if no one has answers, there's always encouragment and concern...And with everything going on at such a fast pace, it is truly appreciated.
The doc said to give it a couple of days and give the antibiotic time to work. With a family to raise, that's easier than it sounds!I just feel so discouraged. I am tired of hurting and i'm impatient.
Patience is not my strong suit!
