ive got an infection

Post by tuttifruitibeck on 1st December 2009, 4:24 pm

hi girlies iv got a dreaded infection on fri as you know i went to get my niple restiches as it wssnt fuseing back together and since sun maybe mon its had a bit of a sweet smell coming from there and i noticed the dressing was sticking to the nipple again which made me think that it wasnt fuseing back together again anyway move the dressing and greyish cream gunk came out so i phoned my nurse no answer so i went to docs and he said it looks infected and smells infected so he took a swab and give me two lots of antibiotics, but hopefull the infection is relativly new as the surgeon didnt see any signs of infection on fri, i really hope my nipple fuses back together this time as it looks like its not going to, im seeing the nurse in cardiff on fri so should have better ideas then. i was told not to shower for a week but now its infected should i clean it, cant get hold of nurse

Aw, sorry to hear this Tutti, I wouldn't touch it until you've checked, and sometimes attempting to clean it could put new bacteria into the wound so best to seek advice first. Hopefully the
antibiotics should help get it sorted xxx

Tutti, you're still gonna have a fab pair of boobies hunni, they're just being a bit stubborn with the healing, that's all, they'll be beautifully healed before you know it Glad you got the advice you needed about the cleaning, keep it up with the antibiotics and that pesky infection will be gone in no time xxxx

Oh hun, I'm sure everything will be fine. It's just going to take a bit longer than you expected, like you said, delayed healing.

Just think of the long term lovely, this is just temporary.

Sorry to hear this hun but it is common with an uplift to have some fluid like that around the stitching, hope it clears up soon x

oh no tutti so sorry to hear this. yea you most not get the area wet at all needs to be left well alone, try not to touch or anything cuz just adding more bacteria to it. def get into to see your surgeon rather than your nurse as mine just strapped it back up and off i went for a few more weeks, until it obviously spead to far. also my surgeon changed the anti biotics i was on from gp as he said they were not strong enough to kill the bacteria. least your gp has taken a swab and stuff i had nothing like that. really hope you get it sorted and get in with your surgeon as soon as hunny. keep us updated. big hugs xx

Sterile, clean, sterile dry, find out from doc which bacteria (they should have cultured swab and tested which antibiotic reacts to nasty bugs)... jump on it like a elephant if it deteriorates asap hun and sending wishes for healing asap.. oh and can you get packet of gloves to wear when you do it? and chuck gloves away, even if you wipe area once, chuck the gauze and take another/... prob suggesting you suck eggs just worries me with infections.. xxxxx

Sounds like you've caught it early, but it probably feels like a lifetime waiting for it to heal, only 3 sleeps to friday and hopefully nurse will tell you it's healing. Good luck for Friday.
