Elbow infection

I went for an elbow operation about 4 months ago and since then i have been struggling with pus that is running out of my elbow and i am experiencing terrible pain. I have been on a lot of antibiotics and nothing works. Please can you give me some advise?

Hi

This is indeed very worrying and you need to go back to the surgeon who did the operation as there might be infection in the bone - and this can be very dangerous. Good luck.
