Staph A Infection 6-weeks Post-op Double Mastectomy with Reconstruction, How will this Effect Healing?
Can you please tell me more about the success rate of healing cellulitis in a reconstructed breast using IV antibiotics (Penicillin G) vs. surgical route? Can cellulitis reoccur? I'm 39 and BRCA1+. I had a bilateral double mastectomy w/reconstruction 7-weeks ago. 1 breast received cohesive gel implant (cellultis side), the other breast has tissue exp. (as skin wouldnt adequately stretch over implant). Also had 3 nodes removed. Pathology was clear of cancer. Any advice/info most appreciated!
