Painful abrasion in the cornea and swollen, numb lips after hysterectomy. What could be the cause?

I just had a hysterectomy and the cornea in my left eye has an abrasion that was extremely painful for 24 hrs afterward but I have been given erythimicin for it and though still bothersome is a lot better. The other thing is that my top lip is very swollen & still feels numb. It has been over 72 hours since my surgery. Can you tell me what caused this? Thank you

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

If you had been intubated for general anaesthesiaits likely that the lip is swollen because of the trauma susatined.
There is no cause for worry. Hot water fomentation and analgesics will help.

In case you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Wishing you happy and healthy life

Take Care
