    Hi Lorraine

    Having open holes on your stomach isn't right. When I had mine removed, the holes where they operated were glued shut.

    I think I had stitches and glue on the belly button one.

    I'd go and speak to your practice nurse or GP.

    Do the wounds feel hot or look red??

    It maybe an infection.

    Hope this helps. And your feeling better soon. Claire. X

      Hi Lorraine

      Sounds like you have an infection. Especially if your feeling sick. Take paracetamol and drink plenty of fluids. And get round the doctors in the morning.

      Let me know how you get on.

      Take care. Claire xxx

      Have you checked your temp??

      If it's up it could indicate an infection.

      Also are you still taking morphine type painkillers??

      Only they can make you feel dizzy and sick.

      Just a thought. Claire. xxx
