Is it bad to constantly have a heating pad on a surgical incision?
I had surgery on Sunday for an infection I got after having a hysterectomy three weeks ago. My doctor put staples directly into the incision from the first surgery and now I have a red, puffy and very painful spot on my new incision site. I am wondering if it is because I have basically had a heating pad on my tummy constantly for the past three days... Silly question, I know, but the heat helps the pain and if that is causing the problem, I would like to know. Thanks so much!!!
