Incisions not healing

It is a little worrisome that the incision won't stay healed. Especially if there is any type of drainage from the wound. If this is the case you need to have your surgeon culture the drainage and make sure that the antibiotics are effective for your particular case. If you actually have an real infection around your implant it very well might not be able to be "cured" without removing the implant. This would be just temporary but obviously a giant inconvenience at the very least.
