I had my lap exactly one week ago today, the weekend i was very sore but felt great, but then monday i started getting really dizzy and having sickness, by tuesday i was being sick and all my pains were back, so i had to go to my doctor asap, who said i have a high tempature, had an allerigic reaction to something they put on my skin during surgery, and have an infection, i was given medication for it to get better, on wednesday everything felt worse, and on thursday i was at my worst! the doctor had to come out, and was told my infection had got much worse, and given me more meds, if they dont work then i need to go straught to the hopsital, today im not as dizzy but n so much pain :( im opretty devastated by it all as i thought it would be over now xx

Hey i went to my doctor who gave me anti biotics last tuesdaay, then on the thursday i was much worse so had to call the doctor out who said the infection had got worse so gave me 2 more anti biotics, he also felt my tummy and said it feels very 'tender' is this normal? i feel slightly better but still sore and groggy! xx

so do they think you have an infection in your scars? - where about are you tender and is this when they touch or when they let go (rebound tenderness) what abx are you on? are you still in a lot of pain?

Well they think i have a UTI nd they said the infection is in my bladder and i have a lot of soreness by my kidneys too, as for my scars there ok but itchy, but thats a sign of good healing, i dont have infection in my scars thankfully. but i didnt have a uti or anything before i went in because they checked it all.i am quite uspet i got one through surgery, but they did say it can happen, but didnt realise theyd be this painful :(, im very sore today, and i ache alot, but when i take pain killers it eases alot, i can finally lay on my side, but only for a certain amount of time then i start to get really sore xx

metronidazole is nasty!! it will make you feel crap! stick with it tho - trimethaprine is a good one to treat uti's.

obviously i cant see you but what you decribe sounds like its gone on for a long time. if you dont see improvement i would think of going to see your gp or a&e.

have you got a temperature? - (sorry im going in to nurse mode- whoops!

take care
