Will a Piece of Gauze Embedded into the Incision Be Automatically Expelled by the Body? (photo)
Three weeks after my mastopexy surgery with implants my left breast vertical incision opened at the bottom. A light red liquid continued to ooze out and every time I changed the gauze the wound would open up. After a week the doctor left the piece of gauze that was stuck in the wound and told me not to get it wet but to leave it there. It has been a week and it looks like it's embedded in the incision. Will the body reject it and fall off on it's own?
