Patient : I had an abominal incisional hernia repaired with the inuse of "pig" mesh on Jan 6, 2012. 2 weeks later, I was rehospitalized due to MRSA in my abdomen. I had pus draining from my 2 JP drains. Last night, my stomach appeared swollen and hurt on the upper, left quadrant. I have had a low grade temp-99 to 100. Do you think I need to see my surgeon??
