Hi Pippi, i'm sorry you're going through it at the minute. Your infection sounds horrible and now you've been told you may have a blood clot! Hopefully this will not be the case.
Sending you my best wishes and lots of hugs xx
Going through the same nerve pain in the night after surgery last Thursday, always feels worse in the night, feeling better in the morning but now tired. Oh the joys, it helps to share it all.
Oh Pippi, I feel so sorry for you, that you've been so poorly, and in the middle of night when thigns always seem worse. Good that Jacq was there to give you some reassurance. Definitely ring Oncology if needed, A&E is not a place you need to be, and Oncology should be able to find someone who can gie you some advice. I don't know if your GP surgery do it or not, or if everyting out of hours now is 111, but my GP surgery out of hours answering machine will sometimes tell a patient to call a specific number for the OOH on duty doctor, although sometimes it says to ring 111, who just say A&E or 999 (as I had to do when my OH had chest problems one night).
I hope you're feeling a bit better this morning. Another thing you could possible try is phoning a local pharmacy and asking advice from the pharmacist? You should be able to find out online which pharmacies are open near you on a Sunday - and many big supermarkets have instore pharmacies - just to see if they can recommend anything to help you get a bit of relief until Monday?
Thinking of you and sending huge hugs x
Jacq - hope you're feeling better, nerve pain is horrible, my Knitting Nannas are obviously reaching out to yours telephatically for a gossip.
May not be the same thing Pippi, I've just finished a week's worth of antibiotics (4 a day) due to a weeping wound under my foob (following mx and left LD recon 5 weeks ago). It's on the side wall of my body under my foob and directly on the scar line. My surgeon said it was not an infection but an ulceration (possibly due to where the skins folds over) on the scar and prescribed the abs as a precaution in addition to having dressings applied daily (by my OH, fortunately not to the hospital each day!).
Hope you feel better soon x
