Thanks for your query.You have undergone surgery (You have not mentioned nature and details of surgery) and you developed septicemia.You are discharged from the hospital with medicine but still you are getting high fever and pus discharge from the wound.This indicates that you still have a infection.Have hospital authorities done culture and sensitivity of the pus to detect the organisms and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to? if the said test is not done pl get it done and start taking appropriate antibiotics.Pl clean the wound everyday .and drain the pus.I think you should be alright in 10 days .
