Hi whoami

No he didn't say what kind of infection, he just said give it until mon/Tuesday and if the antibiotics haven't kicked in, to go back and see him, for probable re admission to hospital for iv antibiotics. I can't get an appointment until Friday by then I'll be 2 days off them, the antibiotics are fluoxcilian 500mg 4 times a day. Been taking them since Thursday but still in an awful lot of pain. Just got my face on a wheat and lavender lag in the shape of a hippo, it's really soft. Apparently I should've been given lots of does n donts before I left the hospital and should've been told a soft diet, but I wasn't visited by the dietician as planned so not sure.

Enough about me, hope you are ok and not in the land of flare(my friend and I are there) it's what we call it when we are really in well

Sue, call the surgery. Explain to them that the antibiotics are not helping and friday is too far away and you are almost done the antibiotic.

Tell them he wanted to see you mon or tues if things were not any better. Insist!!! I have had many serious infections and the medication should have been working by now. Being off them for 2 days will interupt treatment and you may as well start over.


Keep in touch.

Hi whoami

I did insist and I did say that he needed to see me again mon/Tuesday but it fell on deaf ears, I was told I'd have yo see a different dr who has never seen me before and who might not have the same view, I prefer to have continuity of care and see only one or two drs. So I'll phone again tomorrow and ask again, but I'm not holding my breath, if u know what I mean, I spoke to a registrar from the hospital this evening who said was unusual to get infection might just be swelling from trauma of the op. He asked who had dx me with the infection so told him my GP . He's agreed to give me more pain med and anti inflammatory tablets so that's a start, I'll keep u posted, I'm not sure how yo IM you on this forum. Any ideas?

Re: Scared about surgery -update

Postby Sue1968 » Mon May 11, 2015 10:54 pm

Hi folks, I hope that you are all ok, as can be expected with our friend fibro with us. I'm due for more surgery on 26 th may, I'm going in the night before and staying at least 1 night after. I've changed companies recently so my symptoms have quietened down considerably. My surgery is on my knee, from when I fell down stairs last year ive damaged my knee considerably so they need to see how badly damaged it is. Im petrified about surgery, as I don't think my consultant believes me about my fears about the pain exasperation after the operation. I'm seeing the anaesthetist on the 20th, so im going to ask if I can have pcd (patient control drugs) and as much iv pain meds as possible.
I'll keep you posted

Hi everyone, just to let you know that I have had my surgery on my left knee, I'm still having a lot of pain and problems. I'm going to hospital today to have a loop recorder procedure as I keep falling, also I get sharp prolonged periods of left chest pain, so need to find out why? More that likely due to my best friend fibromyalgia. So I've been told I need to have the loop recorder procedure to find out why I'm having symptoms of the bizarre kind. Will further update everyone if they decide whether this is the cause. I'm off to the hospital this morning.
