So I had a great first week post op, now every thing is going down hill. I still feel ok. I have had a fever for the last 2 days and my incision is puffy and pinkish. This started Saturday and I took my last antibiotic on Thursday. I don't want to freak out call my doctor go in and find out it is just the way it is healing. I have never had stitches before so I have no clue what they do. The incision is also bleeding some times. The bleeding happens at the lowest part of the incision and is usually only enough to leave a tiny dot on my cloths, but I don't think it should be happening.
I have also be having increasingly worse spasms. The spasms aren't limited to my legs and back like before, they happen in my hands, fingers, arms, neck, toes, and even my eyes. About 30 minutes after I take my muscle relaxer I have some relief, but it only lasts about an hour. It wakes me up in the middle of the night and makes it hard to do things like brush my teeth. It has also happened in my foot and made me fall.
Also I have notices small bumps in my veins. They are just like the ones you can occasionally get after an IV, but they are not just in my hands, they go up my arms and are sore. I told my doctor and all he did was call in a steroid prescription for me.
Should I go to my doctor about these things or are they normal? Also can anyone give me a time frame on how long it takes for the incision to heal? Does it scar badly?
