Cellulitis, Day Two

Antibiotics are a wonderful thing. The leg is no longer red and warm. The lump is leaking vile, sticky stuff at a tremendous rate.

More warm compresses are scheduled shortly.

I'm starting to suspect that I've had a low-grade version of this in that leg since shortly after the surgery, which would explain a lot of the swelling that never would go down, along with the couple of pimples that I thought were ingrown hairs, but which may well not have been based on what I read on-line about symptoms. Duh.

But it looks like it's getting better.
