Patient, be patient: Get info & help from surgeon - report bleeding. Ask for help to reduce dry heaves - any irritation in throat area is to be avoided if possible. Usually pain meds are stopped at 10 days, but you may hurt longer - protect scabs - they protect you. Drink water as much as you can - enjoy smoothies, ice-cream.

What herbal remedy will heal fungal infection in a post surgical non healing wound?

Herbal cures: First off, how do you know it is a fungal infection? Second, there really isn't any herbal remedy that will cure a fungal infection. Medicine is around because it tends to work for the most things in the most people most of the time. It is frustrating but true. When things don't go the way we all want them to, medicines and doctors tend to get the blame. Sometimes though, things just don't work. ...Read more

How can I know where the infection is coming from? 4 weeks post large incisional hernia repair with infected fluid drainage. Mesh or tissue?

2 doctors agreed:
How can I know where the infection is coming from? 4 weeks post large incisional hernia repair with infected fluid drainage. Mesh or tissue?

Possibly both: It is exceedingly hard to determine if a post-operative infection spares any prosthetic material that was implanted, including mesh; if the infection approaches the material, we assume it is infected. Due to the risk of treatment failure if infected foreign material is left in place, it is generally recommended by id to remove any prosthetic material in these situations. ...Read more

Chronic dental fistula for 1yr caused by tooth extraction, hole in sinus closed now, no sinus symptoms. 2 failed ops. Still pus draining. Any ideas?

Chronic dental fistula for 1yr caused by tooth extraction, hole in sinus closed now, no sinus symptoms. 2 failed ops. Still pus draining. Any ideas?

Infection present: Neutrophils or certain white blood cells are the first line of defense against infection. This makes up most of the pus you see. You most likely still have infection present. Whether it is from dying bone or residual tooth root, or a consistent draining from the sinus. I wouldn't be able to tell with out an x-ray. If you have pus draining it could be from another tooth. ...Read more
