That sounds very scary, but I am glad you were able to receive medical attention!

You say that you are still on antibiotics for infections that are still in your body, 4 weeks post-op? It is very important for you to call your doctor, and describe to him/her what type of pain you are experiencing. Your pain could be from the infection(s) being treated or could be side effects from your medication. Regardless of the reason, it is imperative that you talk with your doctor about your symptoms, since you are still undergoing treatment.

Please keep us updated, and let us know what your doctor's instructions are!
