My son had an emergency appendectomy over the weekend and now has a wound infection. The surgeon stated "I am not surprised as that incision is the one I pulled the infected appendix out of" So why didn't he prescribe antibiotics for this?? So now I am having to do wound packings on my son and not very happy about it!It was a hellish weekend as I was 2 states away when said son became ill and dear hubby trying to relay symptoms and such. Drove home and was glad that I did so I was able to see son before surgery and be with him overnight.Thankful for modern medicine as it is and know that in the end he will be fine. Just a tad frustrated though!
