|Comment||Thank you so much for responding so fast! Ironically the pain and swelling decreased moderately (many warm salt water rinses later!). The surgeon did give me an antibiotic (z-pac)in the event I developed a fever or began to feel more swelling, pain etc. He removed the packing yesterday so I believe I am on the mend. I appreciate your help, I was very scared/worried when I wrote to you. Sincerely, Kathleen|
