Help! Redness on abdomen


14 posts in this topic

Had surgery 3/14 redness around incisions, they're warm to touch. Have bad pain in the upper left part of my abdomen, internallyIMG_0610.thumb.JPG.36060f8ec3d3a60dc0fc07766d6415aa.JPG. Can't get comfortable no matter what I do. Haven't slept much at all.

Call your doctor this morning to be on the safe side. Warmness is typically a sign of a potential infection so not something to mess with. A phone call is never going to hurt to the doc to get their opinion.

I'm allergic to latex tape. Don't know if that could be a possibility for you.
Hope you learn what's wrong and get better soon!

So did you call your doctor and get a response? One of my incisions was infected at it looked very much like the one on your left. It too was very warm.

Just saw your picture, hope you got in touch with your primary or surgeon. Looks like you should be on some antibiotics. I had that with my hystetectomy and they said it was cellulitis and put me on antibiotics oral and topical.
