Last week I had open inguinal hernia surgery and had my incision glued together. How should the incision look by now. Mine looks red like dried blood on it, is this normal and how long is healing.

Change physicians: If you are growing MRSA you must get antibiotics now or you may develop even more problems such as losing significant breast tissue to the infection or this infection could spread even to your bloodstream which can lead to death. In my practice, I try not to be an alarmist but you need help now and require potent antibiotics much sooner then later. An ER visit would be appropriate. Good luck ...Read more
