    Hi Laurx,

    I'm sorry you're in pain! That's awful. If you're not already go to the doctors asked to be referred to the surgeon who performed the surgery as there's clearly an ongoing infection if not you and you're in the UK complain to the hospital the PALS team and they can organise a hospital appointment with the doctor. Hope you get to sorted.

      Yes do, you need referring and if they won't complain about the surgery to PALS and they will give you an outpatient appointment as you are suffering complications from the operation.
