Another Infection After the Implant is Removed. What to Do?
2 mo. after my breast lift & aug. I had an absess along my lower incision line. I tried 2 diff. anti-biotics but it kept coming back and getting worse. I went in the next day for emergency surgery. My doctor cut out the absessed part where the puss was, took out the implant and cleaned the pocket because it was inflamed. Iwas starting to feel better after a wk from surgery. Now at 1 1/2 wks the breast has swelling again and is painful. Finished Bactrim yestrdy. What now?
