Had Breast Reduction on December 10, 2010 - Greenwich, CT

Not a good deal, I am currently dealing with 3 bacterial infections in the right breast and the Plastic surgeon I used keeps saying its not infected. I had a surgical revision on 3/3/11 and he did not remove the sac of infection. I am going to a wound care center, and fear i will lose my right breast completely. I had been to the ER in January when i spiked a fever over 101.3, they said the right breast was infected then, but took no cultures, the PS said they didnt know what they were talking about. Even though i had green drainage that smelled like old fruit and garbage. I continued going to see the PS up until 2/14 and went to the wound care center on 2/28, the admitted me to the hospital from their office. My PS did a revision surgery where he was supposed to remove the abscess and drain the infection. Today 3/7/11, i had a fever of 101.2 and lots of pain, I will not tell anyone I know to go to him.

I found out I had 5 infections in my breast....

I found out I had 5 infections in my breast. Strep, Staph, prevotella, diphthroid, and peptostreptococcus. I was in the hospital for 5 days released March 19, 2011 and had to be placed on IV antibiotics via a PICC line for an additional 14 days. Now I am on another oral antibiotic, but the drainage cleared up, and I am feeling tons better. I have only had 1 fever since leaving the hospital, I feel pretty good. I have nurses coming in everday to change my bandages, but I truly regret having all these complications. Thanks to every one who commented on my post and sent me well wishes.
