10 Days Post Op~ How is everyone healing?

Hello All! I am now 10 days PO and have been doing great! However, I went to the doctor Thursday to find out that about 3 inches of my TT incision isn't healing the way they would like. So, they put me back on antibiotics for a week. It is still oozing quite a bit and very red. He said that I have probably just been overdoing it. But, I have really been taking it easy. So, I'm a little concerned and frustrated. I'm supposed to go back to work on Monday, but am wondering if that's such a good idea. I go back on Thursday to see how it's doing. At this point, I really thought I would be on monthly visits, but I know my doctor is just not willing to take any chances. How is/ was everyone doing at this point? Maybe it's completely normal and I'm just worrying for nothing. Thanks everyone! Joy

Hi there!

I'm sorry you're having issues with your incision. I'm glad your doctor put you on anti-B's! If at all possible, try to take a little more time off. 10 days isn't very long to recover from such a major surgery. Can you get another week?
