PostOp Arthroscopic ALPSA
I just underwent an arthroscopic ALPSA lesion repair on my left shoulder using bio anchors. I've been prescribed Taxim-O, Movon-P and Chymoral Forte for a period of 10 days after surgery. Do I need to take the antibiotics for that long? Also, what is the reason for prescribing antibiotics after a surgery?
