really sore surgical wound
I had an emergency laparoscopy done around 4am on wednesday morning - I had my appendix removed, what was left of a cyst & a lot of free flowing blood drained. I think I possibly have an infection on my right side. its really really sore & I have a lot of redness coming from the sides of dressings I've got on. the other 2 cuts are sore when there's any sort of pressure on or around them, but otherwise ok, any other pain i've got feels more muscular. the pain on my right side is constant & really sore. I've been prescribed dihydrocodeine & taking 1 - 2 tablets every 4 hours with paracetamol.
I'm gonna get a doctors appointment tomorrow - is there anything I can do tonight to help reduce the soreness of it?
