infected syntocin site, what specialist do i need?
gp has washed his hands of this problem. and i'm fed up fannying around in nhs setups, have enough of this with my thyroid and rheumatoid arthritis! i want to go to a private clinic and just get it sorted, but what kind do i need do you think? dermatology?
had my baby 6 mths ago. now have a 3 inch long, 1 inch wide and lord knows how deep but certainly raised half an inch, weird bobbly, sore, inflamed series of lumps where i had syntocin injection. still growing, still getting sorer. did not respond to antibiotics.
Yikes, I've never come across that before. I'm at a loss but certainly speak to someone! Sorry, no help at all! GP is a bit naughty not to refer you even if they think it is 'a bruise' (after 6 months!)
its a bit irritating. its not a major thing to be sure, and totally livable with in many ways but a) knowing my luck my leg will go lurid and drop off or b) i'll continue to feel very sad and negative about my body because of this very visible, pinches when i walk and never leaves me alone lump thing.
i think it's an abscess/cellulitis as well. docs say not, because i grit my teeth and don't scream when they poke it. i mean i can feel it and it's unpleasant, but it's not birthing at 5.3k baby, so no, i wouldn't say it 'hurts' as such.
will take myself off to a dermatologist i think...
