Golfball-size swelling on right elbow periodically emitting mainly clear fluid . Told by GP nothing to do - returned 2 weeks later as pain/discomfort experienced, additional discharge and upon protusion too, squeezed and pulled out 6 inch piece of "twine" (?from previous broken arm many years ago treated in Pakistan? ). Returned to GP - taking said "twine" - ?no reaction- maybe calm down now - if not make YET further appointment! Am concerned about possible infection to surrounding bone area etc

Dr Owen : Hello
Dr Owen : Does the area feel hot to the touch?
Dr Owen : And do you have a fever?
Dr Owen : Hi are you there?
Dr Owen : Why did you click bad, I am trying to help
Dr Owen : essentially with this going on you need to get this surgically explored, opened and packed, plus I would suggest starting on antibiotics such as a combination of Rocephin and Bactrim.
Dr Owen : this is not something a GP should be doing, you need to see an orthodox surgeon for this.
Dr Owen : i wish you well
Dr Owen : please click on EXCELLENT, PLEASE DO. not click on poorPlease or bad, that really hurts me and I just want to help you
Dr Owen : thank you
Customer:

Sorry but responses seemed slow after what paid! Must be me! What to do in UK now for best?

Dr Owen : The best thing to do is to get on antibiotics now, and get this opened up as soon as you can so this will heal and not form further damage.
Dr Owen : I am sorry your GP is not taking this seriously
Dr Owen : but In similar cases the standard of care is to start on antibiotics and to open and drain this - so right now I would get put on antibiotics such as an injection of Rocephin (also known as ceftriaxone), plus pills called Bactrim (also known as septra) this is twice per day for 14 days.
