Hi
my h/v cancelled our appointment this week so quickie Q really, well the subject says it all :-[

Its been oozing for nearly 2 weeks now ( at either end of the scar and is still a bit sore) on Tuesday I finished some antibiotics to clear up any infection but its still oozing/bleeding the Dr (a locum) took a brief look at it that day and said it would be fine now.. despite it still being puss-y. I have to say last night it felt quite sore (twinging from one of the sores) and today seems to be more puss at one end.

Also I have a really sharp pain on one of the sides and I can't lie down on that side at all without this sharp pain totally debilitating me. This is the same side where most of the twinging and puss - y ness is now. (I had it the other side whilst in hospital but that side has stopped now)

Question is how long will it/should it go on for? Is this common I've not heard of anyone else with this complaint. (or complaining :()

The 1st Dr I saw said if left untreated it could open up the whole of the scar and obviously I don't want that to happen.
Thanks for your help

Hiya Alisha

It sounds as if you need a swab taken from the wound to see whats causing the problem

I wouldnt leave it..maybe go and see your practice nurse who will be more familiar with wound care.

Let me know how you get on

hi just thought I'd update you..
the day after I posted I got an emergency appointment and saw another doc insisted on a swab taken and given penicillian ..pain in side stopped 2 days after taking antibiotics and after another lot (3 intotal) of antibiotics it's finally healed up and is no longer sore! PAIN FREE at last! that's practically 9 weeks now though  :eek:
goes to show I should of stamped my feet sooner..
thanks for your advice  :) ^hugme^
hope you're feeling better
