I had a mastectomy and a few lymph nodes taken in 2011, now i have just been bitten by my cat and my hand has really swollen up and is very hot and painfull it is on my right hand, surgery was on my left side do you think i should get it checked out as i remember being told we should be carefull of scratches and bites etc.
You need anti-biotics. Appointment with your GP should be sufficient. Do it today though. A&E if you can't get in.
thank you i have just rang my surgery and i have app this afternoon, will let you know how i get on.
