Had it put in my nose along with cartilage grafts...
- 13 Aug 2011
Had it put in my nose along with cartilage grafts from my ears. Within a few weeks it got infected and a big abscess formed on my nose near my right eye. It was cultured and drained. I was on Bactrim twice, Cipro and now Levaquin. Also using topical Mupirocin. The abscess is still there one month later and still draining.
So now the Doctor wants to go in and remove all my grafts and the Alloderm. He wants to place my grafts behind my ears and three months down the line put them back.
Honestly I'm too worn down from all this to have to endure more painful surgery. The original surgery was extremely painful and the recovery was harsh. I also had ear pinning done.

I would advise anyone to never put anything foreign in there body. Use your own tissue.
