    Assume the infection has been treated. This will delay recovery but if it doesnt feel right get it checked. However, at 18 months I am great a lot of the time but still have days and even a week when it does not feel right - today is one of them hence I am back on this forum which is a great help but we are not doctors so if in doubt get checked out.

    Have you been back to the hospital since your op which usually happens after 12 weeks if you are not happy I would go back to see them
