Is this an infection after Capsulectomy complications 6 weeks ago?
However, I am concerned that you do, in fact, have an ongoing surgical issue. You may need to have the implant removed, the cavity irrigated with antibiotic solution, and then an implant replaced, probably over one or more drains. Even at that, in the face of a semi-chronic infected cavity (which this may be), it may not be possible to salvage the implant.
But this is pure speculation. You need to return to your PS and, if necessary, seek additional consultations from board-certified surgeons who can examine you in person. I wish I had a simpler answer for you but I share your concern.
