post op infection, again

Last night Emma jumped on my abdomen.  After screaming in pain, I had a look at the incision and realized that the edges were red, warm and swollen.  Infection.  Why not?  It happened with the first TAC, and with the C section as well.  Why would history skip a beat?  So I took some leftover clindamycin that I had prepared just in case, and marked the edges.  Two hours later, the redness was a bit less.  The pain is definitely more today than it was yesterday, but the redness, the heat and the swelling are subsiding.  I am phoning the surgeon today to get more antibiotics,  I hope he does not want to see me as it is one hour to his office and seat belt+abdominal incision=pain.
