Should I go back to my doctor?

So just to make sure I'm not being silly or anything i thought I'd find out your thoughts here.

I had some foot surgery done end of September and had some really bad infection. Took three different lots of penicillin because the first two types made me rather Ill let's say 馃槀. It's still not settled and not sure of the stinging around the parts of the foot where it was infected is normal?

By stinging I mean like wasp sting type of pain. Pain killers and ice and rest just aren't cutting it. I don't think I can drink a glass of whiskey every night for the pain 馃槀馃槀 oh well I suppose it helps me sleep at least xD

plenty of time for bruising and healing to have happened. Did you not have a post surgery check up ?

[@448576,Picklebobble2] yeah I got mine from the hospital the ward is in special measures also. Not much hope for our care system. Honestly if we didn't have the vending machines and modern day stuff may as well have been a Victorian hospital haha. I know one chap did lose his foot mind poor bugger

[@665008,Silentangel] Jeez ! Yeah i'd get an emergency appointment with your doc ASAP.
After all the longer you leave it the worse the original problem may actually get.

[@448576,Picklebobble2] yeah it's annoying I don't have time to be sick 馃槀. Though whiskey is a great pain relief alternative 馃槀

While you are phoning your doc for advice, consider soaking it in colloidal silver solution.

[@358142,greenmountaingal] mm interesting theory, I may try see if we can get anything like that over here 馃槉. I don't like taking tablets best of times. Thankies 馃槉

[@665008,Silentangel] It's a liquid. You can also get skin cream.

[@789477,BrattyMel] Jura is a nice brand btw! My dad is a bad influence in encouraging the whiskey drinking 馃槀
BrattyMel31-35, F

[@789477,BrattyMel] it's a brand you can get over here where I am might be able to online 馃槉

Look at it this way, if it is an infection you will want to clear it up ASAP (less antibiotics). If it is not you will have peace of mind.

Yes, that is not the way to treat the pain anyway, but if you are resorting to pain meds you need to be seen asap.
yes. go back until the problem is taken care of
