Complications from Surgery

Went to doctors appointment today, they were upset cause fiberplasty has broken lose and infection set up. Seems as though I wasn't supposed to be sitting in a tub of water for my bath or sitting at all. My release instructions weren't explained to me just written on paper. Now I'm off work for at least another week and my pain medication doubled and a strong antibiotic to boot. Now I may end up losing my job over this surgery due to missing too much work, even though I was under a doctors care I can only miss 8 days in a year even with a doctors excuse. I go back to the doctor Friday the 8Th at 11:00 a.m. and hope the antibiotics are working and the surgery healing up but for now will just have to wait and see. First time surgery you never know what to expect or what questions to ask when your released to go home.

I can't believe the didn't explain your discharge instructions to you. They're always supposed to do that.
Here's hoping the infection clears up quickly and your boss understands.

Hope the antibiotic knocks out the infection and pain medication makes life bearable.

Good thoughts for your continued employment at your present position once you get healed. ;)

Kristine; the nurse at the doctors office said she can't help the way the hospital nurses release people and she was sorry for that. The infection is worst and my surgery not healing yet.

Live to hunt; thanks for the heart felt and kind words though I don't think my employer is as thoughtfull, all he cares about is making money.
