Multiple Infections - Should I Remove the Expander or Continue w/ LD Flap Surgery?
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009; had a bilateral mastectomy and LN dissection with reconstruction done during this surgery (expanders placed). Underwent chemo and had radiation to the left breast. In December developed a cellulitis to the left breast took about a month of augmentin and was fine until a few days ago. Again I have pain and redness to the left breast and a fever. Is it time to say this cannot be saved and have the expander removed and go ahead with a LD flap in May?
