"An infection after operation"

Posted by Mr Onegoodleg (as ),
I had a varicose veins endovenous laser ablation recently at East Surrey Hospital.
While I recovered well for the first 24 hours, thereafter I had increasing pains in my upper leg where the main part of the surgery had taken place. It was so painful that I could hardly walk by the late evening and kept me awake all night. In the morning I called NHS 111 helpline and was advised by a clinician to seek an emergency appointment with a GP at Oxted Health Centre as it appeared I may have an infection. Dr prescribed a course of Co-Amoxylin which I am pleased to say cleared up the infection which I picked up during the operation.
