Signs of infection after surgery
I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I see you asked this question 2 days ago, so hopefully you either went to the ER or are now feeling better. Nevertheless, I feel it's important for others to know basic information about post op infections. Look for:
- Increased warmth/reddness and swelling to site
- Temperature above 100degrees F (you must have a thermometer, feeling 'warm' is not helpful in assessment)
- Drainage of pus (cloudy grayish-green)
I hope this helps for future reference!
