I had breast augmentation on April 30th. The left one was always a lot more swollen. It started to heat up, get red and cause a huge amount of pain.
I was ignored by my doctor. After days and days of this, I finally demanded my boyfriend drive me to the ER. My WBC count was through the roof and of course, as I feared, I had an infection.
I have been in the hospital on IV anti-biotics for days -- things are clearing up but the left breast is still a full cup size larger than the right.
I am a grad student but make my money bar tending in a corset... I am devestated, upset, depressed... everything bad all rolled into one. He says it has to come out, how long till I can get it fixed? He at first said 30 days so I mentally prepared for that, now he is saying 60-90. Advice please!
Do you have to wait for infected breast implants be removed or replaced?
He was good, but didn't listen to my concerns post-op and waited until I took myself to the ER and the onfection got worse to take me seriosuly.
