Replied by PNA-Tammy on topic post-operative infection

Hello,
I am not a medical professional so I do not have the training to give you specific advice about what should be done. What is your doctor saying about the infection, are you seeing the ENT? Have they tried different antibiotics?

The only advice that I can offer is to see a pituitary specialist, if you're not already. Also make sure you are seen regularly for followup appointments.

post-operative infection was created by [email protected]

I had pituitary surgery for the second time. About 90% of the tumour was removed. Everything went well except for an ENT post-op infection that won't go away despite the antibiotics.
Any advise ?
