Hello everyone ... I am 4 weeks post op for colon resection surgery. About 10 days ago, I developed an incisional infection, which has pretty much cleared with Keflex antibiotic. Last night, while still taking the Keflex, I noticed some redness and inflammation near the surgical site which I suspected may be the beginning of Cellulitis. Today, my surgeon confirmed that and started me on Augmentin. I have no fever, chills etc and no real pain by the infected area but am very concerned as to how this could develop when I was already on the Keflex. I would appreciate hearing about anyone's experiences with any of this ... Thanks
