pain med question

day 4 in the hospital
I developed a abcess that became infected I am on iv antibioticsIit has been extremely painful. I do not wanna scare anyone who wants a tt but make sure yiu do your research on your surgeon also make sure your surgeon does all the proper testing and blood work before hand. This is where I made my mistake
The last three weeks have been a struggle. I was in thd hospital from august 30 until September 12 I am home on home health cRe with pic line antibiotics and a vaccum drain on my left side.While hospitalized I met a great team of plastic surgeons who are gonna do my revision I will post pics later aon today.
Very nice and supportive
