I keep writing this and then it deletes! I had an infection in my main laperoscopy wound in navel and the surgeon who removed my gallbladder admitted me to hospital five days after the procedure and put me on IV antibiotics plus oral ones and cleaned out and packed the wound each day for four days.
Now I'm home with directions to get wound cleaned and dressed by practice nurse daily until it is fully healed while taking both antibiotics orally because I ran out of veins for the cannulas.
Has anyone else had this experience and how long does it take for a deep open wound like this to heal if so?
He says it was probably caused by local anaesthetic after the op - which snagged a blood vessel abd this turned into an abscess. Ultrasound showed that internal infection not a problem although he said my gallbladder was tucked right into my liver so was very hard to extricate - stone the size of a cream egg complicated the key hole surgery further.
