it is sore for my clothes or me to touch!just at the top of the scar!i wondering since i had a ruff time with infection ,i have had 3 back surgeries in a month and the last one i got infected and was sent home with a i v .and i'm scared that the scar is getting infected ! do you think i should call my doctors office monday and tell them what is going on!i don't want to be a baby and bother them ! but i believe this needs the doctors attention !
You are not being a baby. Give the doctor a call first thing Monday and let them know what is going on. Are you running a fever? Can you actually see the incision? Is it puffy? The doctor's office is liable to ask you some of these questions so you may want to at least take your temperature, if you can.
Good luck and keep in touch,
Yes! Make an appointment & have it checked out! Scars can get itchy, but if you had an infection it's not worth the chance of another one. My hubby had 8 followup surgeries for infection from gallbladder where the doctor cut into mesh from a previous surgery. It took over 3 years to heal & now his stomache has herniated out of the big ole' scar he has & can't do anything about it. Please get it checked. Hopefully it's nothing, but don't take that chance.
