  • Every doctor has an answering service. Stay on the line a little longer and get the after hours number.

  • You can call ANY emergency room in this country and speak to a registerd nurse for free and ask them if this might be an infection. Having had surgery Id be worried you picked up MRSA or something worse from the hospital. CALL and find out.
