Infection, puffy tummy now??

On Friday I was diagnosed with an internal infection at the vaginal cuff and given an 'acillin to combat it. I'm alittle over 7 wks from post op.
Well, I haven't had 'swelly belly' for about a week now, but it is back today! Is this a danger sign on the infection? The only thing the doctor told me to watch for was a fever and I don't have one. I do have an achy back, this swelly belly thing going on in my lower belly and a very upset tummy, it has been rumbling loudly since 4 am this morning. In fact, it woke me UP! Is this stomach upset a typical reaction to an antibiotic? Are there any other signs i should be watching out for that the antibiotic might not be strong enough or that the infection is spreading somehow? The doc gave me the ok at 6 wks to do anything, and then 4 days later I was back in the office.

s I'm so sorry that you're having all this trouble. I think that maybe you should call your dr and mention your swelly belly.With the rumbling it could just be more gas (mine does that) but better safe as they say.
Antibiotics sometimes mess up my system. I've found that cottage cheese helps when I have to take them.
Please call your dr and let us know what you learn.
