Post surgery 18/05.. infected stitches

Hi everyone it's been rough! I never anticipated the level of emotion and stress I would go through with recovery.
After overcoming the trails and tribulations of "toilet trauma" I have now been diagnosed to have infected stitches. Major yuck!!! Wet, sticky and smelly. I'm told it's common but it doesn't feel it. I was too embarrassed to even tell my husband or be examined by docs. Stupid really as I could have made things worst by hiding it. Now being treated with antibiotics which should clear within the next 7 days.
It's quite strange the reassurance from medical profession. "You've gone through major sugrey it's going to take time to heal"
I really don't think I considered how tough it would be... it feels as though it's been ages!
