- 29 Sep 2009
I had breast augmentation last year. I started running a low grade fever for months and my GP could not find the issue and the PS said it was not related to my surgery. I ended up having capsular constraction of both breast and the PS let this go on for at least 6 months putting me on Vit. E and then Accolade with no success. I finally went in around March of 2009 to have surgery to correct the C.C. keep in mind i still had this low grade fever for almost a year now.
After the P.S performed the surgery he said that i indeed did have an ifection in both breasts. he took them completely out and said he "bathed" them in antibiotic solution cleaned my breast out "very well" he said and put me on antibiotics afterwards. almost immediately my fever was gone.
A few months later my left breast began to harden again even with all the massaging? He did not wait as long as i insisted this time not to wait. he did a capsulectomy on the left breast last friday. again putting back the same implant? I was under local this time which was horrible because i could feel almost everything but i was from out of town and he said he would not use general because it was cheaper for me?
It has been a little over a week and i am running another low grade fever along with that i was massaging my breast today and blood came out of my nipple? I immediately stopped massaging when i saw the blood and called the PS. he said it was nothing and don't worry about it and stop massaging the breast and that regarding the fever i was probably getting the flu? This does not sound right to me. I would have at least thought i would have been put on some kind of antibiotic after being sent home from surgery? any advise would be greatly appreciated?I need advise! I had a capsulectomy 11 days ago and now have a bloody discharge from my nipple and low grade fever?
