i have had several surgeries over the past few years. My recent was to be a simple removal of my appendix. Not so. I was stitched inside with nylon and after a couple of weeks my 6 inch wound began to open. I went to my usual doctor and not the hospital. After several times packing the wound. It was decided that all the dead tissue had to be removed. this was done under local. I was in a lot of pain and had several weeks of work. This was 3006. Recently I discovered a lump on my right side beside the scar. It waw again mylon thread making its way to the surface of my abdomen. My local doctor again gave me local but it was so painfull that they had to use a general. I have over 30 staples in my abdomen After a few days my wound had become very swollen and painfully this was due to an infecton. My doctor drained this but still some of the infection remained. A swab was taken and the only way of treating this was antibiotics. There are only two that will do the trick one of which Septrim I am allergic to the other was IV induced. After setting up the IV the doctor introduces the antibiotic and within 120 minutes my heas started to itch then my face and then my whole body while feeling a strange burnng sensation my doctor stopped the IV and gave me antihystamine and some other drug to conteract the effect which were very stressful. After this my itch reduced and my redness faded. But it left my body shaking my doctor told me that this was normal after such treatment. Now on returning home. My muscles feel as though they have a a good work out. They cannot give me antibiotics because there is none I can take I fear this problem coming back. I cannot walk because of the pain in my legs. my abdomen is still painfull. I have lost weight because I am to sore to eat. Can someone tell me what to do
