Hi, I had my laparoscopy on Monday (5 days ago now) and had some adhesions cut away. I have been to the GP as my sister who is a nurse told me she thought I had Thrombophlebitis in the arm which had the Venflon in on Monday 😪😪 I sure enough have Thrombophlebitis and I am now on Flucloxacillin 4 times a day. My belly button incision is so sore and tender and still yukky under the dressings which have been changed twice. How long before the antibiotics help heal the sore looking belly button? The GP said the Flucloxacillin will help infection in vein and yukky looking button. My hospital didn't stress enough how crap I'd feel afterwards - I've likened it to being like run over by a bus! Any advice greatly appreciated x
