Problem with Tissue Expanders - Infection or Just Fluid Build Up?
I had a BMX with TEs about 5 weeks ago. The left side never drained much - always less than 20 ml a day. When drains came out, the left side got really hard and slightly red on the bottom. After the first expansion, it got more red and swollen - no fever though. It's especially red on the bottom and always pinches when I bend over; almost feels like a super tight underwire. My PS put me on antibiotics 3 days ago and today my drain site reopened and started spouting out reddish/yellowish fluid.
