Pus update

I've been taking antibiotics for the last 4 days. I still get a drop or so of pus once a day.

The clot was probably the same thing. The area is not red or tender which is a good thing. It is actually hard and black. Not sure what that means.

But I'm worried that the pain is still there. We have changed the puncture site so there's nothing irritating the infected spot. Augmentin should have stopped the pus totally.

The neph I showed it to did say that it looked like it was superficial. But he added the rider that I should show it to the vascular surgeon who made the fistula.

So, I'm going to the vascular surgeon shortly.

I do not want to take any chances with this thing.
