Two and a half weeks ago, I underwent an exploratory laparotomy that resulted in an appendectomy. Yesterday, I went to see my primary care physician who diagnosed a surgical site infection. I was given Cephalex three times per day for ten days. My question is about traveling with my current condition. In a few days, I am scheduled to chaperone high school students in a four day trip. We are traveling by charter bus, which will take eight hours. There will be considerable walking. Due to my current condition, would you recommend me to attend this trip? Do you think it will not cause more harm and be reasonably safe? Your response is greatly appreciated.
