Post op abcess - advice please


New Member
My daughter had surgery about 10 days ago. It was a large abcess and the wound left open with dressing and packing changes every other day. She is feeling better but it's still very hard to sit for too long without a lot of pain.
She has a practical exam next week that is over two days and when I asked the nurse if it was OK if she did it or not, she didn't seem to know and shrugged. The thing is she could possibly try doing the exam , which she has said to me she is willing to, but she doesn't know if she will be able to complete a full day. Also I suppose the question is actually 'should' she do it and be possibly mostly sitting for that long on the wound?

Any advice appreciated .
