Laparotomy infection 3 weeks after cellulitis

Posted , 1 user is following.

hi i had an emergency laparotomy on the 8th of november to remove a 11cm cyst from my ovary which ended up being a torsion.

i started to develop a rash above my wound on my belly fat 3 weeks after i was told it was cellulitus given antibiotics then i ended up with sepsis as the GP gave me the wrong ones and the infection turned out to be quite deep. i ended up in hospital again had IV antibiotics for 4 days and then oral for 3 days. after being off the antibiotics for 2 days the rash started to re appear along with pain in my stomach and stinging in the incision i am now back on antibiotics for another 10 days. has anyone experienced this before could you give me any hope as i really dont need this i have a small child and i work full time being off for 5 weeks already has been a nightmare.

thank you
