Hello I went to the dr about my constant pain and open incision I was told the incision was fine but I am still having alot of burning, itching and pus coming from it I would like to send the picture to show but don't know how to upload I am truly tired and at this point going to see another Dr can anyone offer some advice or encouragment the incision does not look good to me and also I stay soooo tired.


  • Did the doctor put you on antibiotics. Sounds like an infection to me. It may be a good idea to have your primary care doctor take a look at it.


  • I'm Jan. I just joined the sight this morning. I've chronic severe back pain for three years and still haven't gotten fixed. I haven't had surgery yet, but it does sound like it's infected. A friend of mine had a surgery and the her sight got infected. The doctor ignored it and it got worse. I'm not trying to scare you, I just want to urge you to go see another doctor immediately. Even if you have to go the emergency room. Hang in there hun. I know what it's like to have something wrong with u, be in a all that pain and have the doctor act like nothing is wrong. A lot of times doctors make mistakes and don't want to admit it. Keep me posted and keep your head up :)
  • SprocketBaby (Jan)...I think i know you!
    I'm from the pittie rescue forum....just under a different name here.

    If it's you, I am glad you came here and hope you can get support/help for your situation.

  • I go to the dr on monday I have severe itching and there is pus coming out and the inside of the wound is bright red and around the wound it is purplish and red and very inflammed I told the dr it hurts so bad even to touch it so wish me luck I am seeing another Dr on monday will let you guys know what happens.
  • Do you have a fever? By the description of your wound, it definitely sounds like an infection, i'd get it looked at ASAP if you are not on antibiotics.
