10 weeks post op incision infection?

Hi all,

I had a C6/7 ACDF 10 week ago. Recovery has been going okay....slowly but surely. This last week I noticed some discomfort in the middle of my scar/incision site and some pus and blood came out as I manipulated the scar. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm obviously keeping it dressed until I can get in to see my surgeon. I just wasn't expecting to see this 10 weeks out when there were no infection issues before.



  • I tried my best to keep the incision dry before it's totally healed. Even after the wound is closed, I used sterile solution to cleanse it regularly. Just for your info.
