Remember last weekend, when I was panicking that my TKR operation site wasn't right as it was weeping? And remember how I saw physios/nurse/doctor/a&e doctor, who concluded that it was nothing, probably just an internal stitch playing up? Well I had an appointment booked with my regular GP today for something else, but my incision has been really sore, and still got pus coming from it, so I asked her to have a look. She took one look,and said yep, that's definitely infected! 😨😬
She's prescribed me heavy duty antibiotics, (hello thrush!) And she also sent me through to the nurse practitioner to get it properly dressed. They've both said it's only a surface infection. But if ANYTHING changes, e.g. it gets redder, hotter or it starts tracking, then I'm NOT to wait (I wouldn't anyway) but get it seen to straight away.
So finally it's being properly addressed, and I'm hoping it will soon clear up - annoying though that it's taken 7 medical professionals before I get it properly dealt with!
