Hi everyone, I’m new here but keep referencing back as I find it so helpful here. Anyways lately I’ve noticed one now going on two of my incisions having a round red puffy circle around my incisions and on what the doctor already told me was infected but not to worry and as of yesterday started getting a bright red/purple yellow bruise… help?

I would ask your surgery center. That's not something the internet can diagnose.

You need to call your surgeon. If you develop a fever above 38ºC/100.4ºF, especially. If you develop a fever above 39ºC/102.2ºF, you should go to urgent care.

Your doctor said it was infected but not to worry? Did they give you any antibiotics or say you needed to come in? I am a wound care nurse, your margins are spreading which is not a good sign. If your doctor refuses to help, please go to urgent care or the ER.

I had leftover antibiotics from a UTI prior to surgery which she said to take it was 1 tablet twice a day, I had 2 days leftover. She said it should go away with that but I couldn’t help but worry so I was asking for opinions not a diagnosis, thank you guys I’ll be heading to urgent care as another incision is starting to get red swelling around it as well

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
