complications arising from hammertoe surgery

Posted by maribeth on 1/03/04 at 21:18 (141280)

I had hammertoe surgery on my babytoe 8 weeks ago. I have been back to my Podiatrist a few times regarding an infection. He said it was a stich abcess, and supposedly corrected the problem and for awhile it seemed to be getting better. Now it is red, swollen and hurting again. He put me on clydamicin which 2 weeks ago he told me to stop taking. I am now taking them again. What could the problem be? Thanks
