I have to call the Dr's office in the morning as soon as they open. One of my little incisions is extremely red and hot. I called the after hours Dr. number and talked with the on call surgeon but he kind of gave me an "non" answer. He asked how long the incision is - about an inch- and I told him my past of having frequent staph infections and a past MRSA when I had hip surgery. I have lupus and was on Cellcept until about a month until the surgery so my ability to fight infections is a bit lowered. I've been so careful and done everything my Dr. has told me to do and he even looked at the incisions the other day. When I saw him this incision was a bit pink but in the last 2 days, it started looking strange so I put Neosporin on it but that seemed to make it worse. Last night only showered and then covered with a band-aid. This morning, it's totally red and the ring around the incision is getting bigger. The on call Dr. told me to put a hot, wet compress on it since the incision is so small and not to be very worried about MRSA and the incision would possibly drain by itself but to call the office in the morning to see about being seen. He said if I'm overly concerned (which to me implied that I'm concerned for nothing) to go to ER. Going through MRSA several years ago meant months and months of wound care, antiobiotics and more surgery. It was a nightmare I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy! Now I'm thinking maybe this surgery was not such a good idea. My husband offered to take me to ER but he spent all night at the other hospital in town because his Dad had a possible heart attack. I'm supposed to be at work at 9am tomorrow but left a message for my boss that I have to call Dr's office to see when I can get in and seen. Has anyone had these type complications? Tell me this gets easier! I have a concert in Denver on Saturday that I've been waiting for for months and certainly don't want to miss it.
