So I am now back in hospital as of yesterday, 8 days post op. Felt awful and in excruciating pain all week so after visiting my GP yesterday and having a temperature of 38.1 I was admitted to SAU at Royal Stoke hospital where they checked my urine which was positive for blood and leukocytes so I have been on IV antibiotics overnight and had a CT scan of my pelvis and stomach which has shown a collection of infected pus, hence why I'm in so much pain. So the consultant has decided to see if the infection subsides wth the antibiotics but if not they have to open me up again. As you can imagine I feel really poorly and extremely emotional. Back on oramorph but I'm still in so much pain.

  • hi heidi. sorry to hear u r still having problems. better that its been picked up now and its not been left to develop further. i had a severe infection which had built up from the start but docs ignored it. eventually all the pus just literally poured out one day. i hope they can sort you without having to open you up again. sending you big hugs x

  • hi rachel. it prob was a bit sore but it was quite overwhelming when it did happen because there was so much of it. they ended up taking a swab which after a week or so showed that i had a hospital acquired infection. took three different lots of antibiotics to get it sorted. are u still in hospital? have they swabbed u?
