E. Coli Infection After Breast Reduction?
Had breast reduction 4.5 wks. ago, started draining 2 wks. ago & incisions opened up in 3 spots. Told dr.'s asst. & she said I was ok just keep the wounds clean & dry. Went to a wound clinic, received Aquacel AG & took cultures. Results indicated an E. Coli infection! I showered with Dial, took Bactrim, no baths/swimming, changed bras daily, used hydrogen peroxide and clean q-tips/cotton balls, changed towels & washcloths every other day. Is this normal? How did this happen & how to treat?
